Toward reducing the spread of hiv in northeastern Thai villages : Evaluation of a village-based intervention.
This paper presents results of the evaluation of an intervention designed for northeastern Thai villages and particularly for village women.
The intervention was based on established principles of behavior change, social learning theory, and community health promotion, and it was grounded in elicitation research.
A total of 600 women and 479 men from 12 villages participated in the evaluation which used data collected from face-to-face knowledge, attitude, practices (KAP) surveys, focus groups, and village meetings in a quasi-experimental pre-and post-control group design.
Eight of the nine outcome goals set for the intervention were achieved with significant increases in married women taking the initiative in reducing the risk posed to them by the sexual activities of their husbands.
