Project S.A.F.E.: Sexual Awareness For Everyone
An Intervention to Prevent STDs Among Minority Women
Developed for use in public health clinics, PROJECT S.A.F.E. is a three session
cognitive-behavioral intervention designed to reduce STD infections among Hispanic
and African American women. Sessions are designed to facilitate skill development
to avoid infections while increasing awareness that STDs (including AIDS) disproportionately
affect minority women. The intervention also helps build decision-making and
communication skills, and encourages participants to set risk reduction goals.
Participants gain mastery through role-play, group discussion, and behavioral
The original evaluation, conducted in metropolitan San Antonio, TX, between 1993 and 1994, included 617 Hispanic and African American women. Participants were randomly assigned to either the intervention group (n=313) or the control group (n=304). Intervention group participants took part in three small-group sessions while their control group counterparts received standard STD counseling. Program participants showed a lower rate of infection as well as a better understanding of risky sexual behavior as compared to the control group. View more detailed information on this program.
