The Women and Infants Demonstration Project is a multisite, behavioral intervention research effort funded by the Centers for Disease Control.
The project is evaluating a theory-based, integrated intervention model to increase the use of condoms for prevention of both sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and unintended pregnancy among women and their partners at risk of infection with HIV.
The importance of utilizing carefully targeted, credible and persistent risk reduction interventions to effect lasting behavior change has become evident over the last ten years of the AIDS epidemic.
The theory-based intervention components being evaluated in this intervention study involve one-on-one stage-tailored outreach ; the development and distribution of community-tailored HIV prevention materials, called role-model stories ; and the development of organizational and peer networking, all within a community mobilization framework.
This article describes each of the intervention components being evaluated during this 5-year study.
Such an intervention effort represents an important contribution in the design of community-level AIDS prevention intervention efforts which support individual-level behavioral changes by women at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
