Youth and AIDS Project's HIV Prevention Program
Investigators: Gary Remafedi, Susan Reynolds, John Yoakam, & Kevin Cwayna

A community and university partnership launched this program to provide education, peer support, counseling, and case management to gay and bisexual male adolescents between 13 and 21 years of age, who are at high risk for HIV/AIDS. The program begins with an initial two-hour interview for individualized HIV/AIDS risk assessment and risk reduction counseling. Youth then participate in a 90-minute interactive peer education program designed to provide clear, factual information in an atmosphere of mutual support. The program's lessons are reinforced in an educational video. Optional peer support groups meet weekly, if youth wish to attend. Finally, there is a one-hour follow-up visit for reassessment and referrals, as needed, to medical and social services. A field study of the program was conducted with a predominantly white sample of males, ages 13-21, who identified themselves as gay or bisexual. Following the intervention, the 139 participants reported less frequent unprotected anal intercourse and more frequent use of condoms. A reduction in substance abuse, particularly amphetamines and amyl nitrate, was also recorded. View more detailed information on this program.
