    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To provide the first data which evaluates an HIV risk reduction intervention designed to reduce HIV high-risk sexual behavior in African-American homosexual and bisexual men.

    Subjects 

    Participants (n=318) were recruited from bars, bathhouses, and erotic bookstores, and through homosexual African-American organizations, street outreach, media advertisements, and personal referrals of individuals aware of the study.

    Methods 

    Participants were randomized into a single or triple session experimental group or a wait-list control group.

    Both experimental interventions included AIDS risk education, cognitive-behavioral self-management training, assertion training, and attempts to develop self-identity and social support.

    Data collection involved assessments of self-reported changes in sexual behavior at 12-and 18-month follow-up.

    Results 

    Participants in the triple session intervention greatly reduced their frequency of unprotected anal intercourse (from 46 to 20%) at the 12-month follow-up evaluation and (from 45% to 20%) at the 18-month follow-up evaluation.

    However, levels of risky behavior for the control group remained constant (from 26 to 23% and from 24 to 18%) at 12-and 18-month follow-up evaluations, respectively.

    In addition, levels of risky behavior for the single session intervention decreased only slightly (from 47 to 38% and from 50 to 38%) at the 12-and 18-month follow-up evaluations, respectively.
