A Clinic-Based AIDS Education Program for Female
This is a single-session group intervention originally targeted toward sexually
active girls between 13 and 21 years of age. The session includes a brief lecture
on the transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS (based on CDC guidelines), followed
by a video explaining the purpose and use of condoms. As the session ends,
participants receive an educational booklet reinforcing the program's lessons
and coupons that may be redeemed anonymously for an unmarked box of condoms
at a local pharmacy. The redemption rate of the coupons provides a measure
of the program's impact. A field study of the intervention was conducted with
75 White and African-American females, all of whom were sexually active. Among
prior purchasers of condoms, girls who took part in the intervention were significantly
more likely to redeem the coupons than were control groups of their peers.
Overall, 60% of program participants obtained condoms, a rate 2 1/2 times greater
than that recorded in comparable programs without a confidential redemption
procedure. View more detailed information on this program.
