AIDS Risk Reduction for College Students
Originally designed as a workshop for college students, this program consists
of three two-hour sessions incorporating information, motivation, and behavioral
strategies for AIDS risk reduction. The information component includes "AIDS
101," a slide show that explains the transmission and prevention of HIV,
testing for the virus, and the importance of condoms for protection against
HIV/AIDS among those who are sexually active. The motivation component is addressed
through small-group discussions led by a peer health educator and a video narrated
by persons who contracted HIV through unsafe heterosexual intercourse. Finally,
behavioral skills development is encouraged through role plays of safe sex
communication. In a field study of the program with 744 college students, participants
showed significant gains in knowledge, motivation, and behavior; in particular,
sexually active participants were more likely than similar control students
to purchase and use condoms during a two- to four-month period following the
more detailed information on this program.
