    This study examined the impact of a worksite based AIDS prevention program among port workers in Santos, Brazil on sexual ask behavior for HIV infection.


    Male port workers (n=226) were followed in a 3-wave prospective cohort study.

    A multifaceted intervention costing US $90 000 for 20 000 workers was conducted between waves 2 and 3. Results.

    Heterosexual risk behavior showed no dcecline between waéves 1 and 2 (before the intervention) but decreased substantially between wavzes 2 and 3 (after the intervention).

    This decrease resulted from both a decrease in nonprimary partners and an increase in condom use.
