learning more about the stigma before the trial started would be a good idea.  Having discussions with past participants or other MSM (possibly focus groups or interviews) about what to expect would be helpful.

I think the main thing here is the importance of participants being anonymous, so they are not associated with the trial and stigmatized as a result.  Having some referral info on behavioral support services may be needed, as well.
