Effects of an HIV risk reduction project on sexual risk behavior of low-income STD patients.
A 10-hour small-group informational and skill-building intervention was tested among patients (N=472) attending publicly funded sexually transmitted disease clinics in Maryland, Georgia, and New Jersey.
After completing a 90-minute interview concerning HIV risk behaviors, condom use self-efficacy and condom outcome expectancies, participants were randomized to either an intervention or a control condition.
Participants in both conditions displayed significant reductions in unprotected encounters and number of partners and increases in condom use.
No differences between treatment conditions were observed, indicating that the motivational effects of the interview may have been stronger than the effects of the intervention in this population.
