This study reports the results of a behavior change intervention offered to women at high risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection seen in an urban primary health care clinic.
Participants were 197 women randomly assigned to either an HIV/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) risk reduction group or a comparison group.
Women in the HIV/AIDS intervention group attended five group sessions focusing on risk education ; skills training in condom use, sexual assertiveness, problem solving, and risk trigger self-management ; and peer support for change efforts.
Women in the comparison group attended sessions on health topics unrelated to AIDS.
