Portland Women's Health Program
Portland Women's Health Program, a one-to-one behavioral intervention, aims to reduce
HIV risk behaviors and increase life stability among women who were recently incarcerated. A
community health specialist extensively trained in motivational interviewing (MI) techniques
meets individually with women during 10 sessions delivered over three months. During program
sessions, the health specialist uses MI techniques to empower and encourage women to explore
potential positive changes they can make in their lives. The sessions are both directive, since the
health specialist guides the conversation toward particular topics, and participant-centered, since
the participant's experiences, views, and reluctance or readiness to change are central topics of
discussion. All ten of the Portland Women's Health Program sessions address HIV-prevention in
addition to life stability issues.
