Hot, Healthy, and Keeping it UP!
This program is a three-hour, single session, culturally appropriate intervention
for use with homosexual Pacific Islander and/or Asian men. The intervention
is designed to increase positive ethnic and sexual identity in order to help
participants acknowledge HIV risk behaviors by discussing negative experiences
of being both Asian or Pacific Islander and homosexual (e.g., lack of social
support, racism, homophobia). Guided by the Health Belief Model, the theory
of reasoned action, and social cognitive theory, facilitators use interactive
and group process techniques to address the following four intervention components:
1) development of positive self-identity and social support; 2) safer sex education;
3) eroticizing safer sex; and 4) negotiating safer sex. Of the 258 participants
in the original evaluation, most were about 29 years old, Chinese, college-educated,
immigrants. Most had been tested for HIV and had reported multiple partners
in the three months prior to the intervention. Results of the evaluation indicate
that intervention participants were significantly more knowledgeable about
HIV-risk reduction, were significantly more motivated about addressing risk,
had significantly fewer partners, and were significantly less likely to report
unprotected anal intercourse than counterparts in the control group at three-month
follow-up. (Choi et al., 1996). View
