AIDS Prevention and Health Promotion among Women
AIDS Prevention and Health Promotion among Women is designed to assist participants
between 16 and 29 years of age in developing and following a sound sexual health
plan. Based on the concepts of empowerment, group social support and culturally
sensitive skill building, this program comprises four 1 1/2- to 2-hour small
(2-8 participant) group sessions conducted over the course of three months.
Video segments promote group discussion, spark group role plays and engage
participants in cognitive rehearsal and guided exercises designed to encourage
healthy choices about one's body and sexuality. Specifically, this program

unsafe sex. It helps them achieve a sense of mastery and positive expectations

condom use, and other health-related concerns with their partners. In addition,
the program teaches participants how to effectively negotiate safer sex with
one's partner and maintain safer sex goals. This program was field tested with
pregnant low-income African-American and white women who were using medical
center obstetrics services in Akron, Ohio. Compared to control groups, participants
showed significant and sustained increases in HIV/AIDS knowledge, safer sex
goals, and safer-sex behaviors, including spermicide and condom purchases and
