This study assessed the impact of video-based educational interventions on condom acquisition among men and women seeking services at a large sexually transmitted disease clinic in the South Bronx, New York.
During 1992,3348 African American and Hispanic patients were enrolled in a clinical trial of video-based interventions designed to promote safer sex behaviors, including increased condom use.
Patients were assigned to one of three groups : control, video, or video plus interactive group discussion.
Subjects were given a coupon to redeem for free condoms at a pharmacy several blocks from the clinic.
Rates of condom acquisition were assessed by level of intervention.
In comparison with a control groups, subjects who viewed videos were significantly more likely to redeem coupons for condoms (21.2% redemption rate vs 27.6%). However, participation in interactive sessions after video viewing augmented the positive effects of video viewing along (27.6% redemption rate vs 36.9%). Gender and ethnicity were significantly associated with outcomes.
The condom acquisition rate almost doubled with the use of culturally appropriate, video-based interventions.
Designed to present minimal disruption to clinical services, these interventions can be implemented in clinics servicing at risk men and women.
