Promoting condom use with main partners: A behavioral intervention trial for women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Stages of Change (SOC) model was used to implement and evaluate a condom promotion intervention for HIV-positive and at-risk women who were recruited from clinic and community settings in Baltimore and Philadelphia. Participants were assigned to receive standard reproductive health services or enhanced services (standard plus SOC peer advocate intervention). Women who had a main partner at baseline and at a 6-month follow-up were included in the analysis (70 HIV positive, 471 at risk). Compared with the standard group, HIV-positive women in the enhanced group were significantly more likely to have progressed in the SOC model or to have maintained consistent condom use, and less likely to have relapsed or stayed in the precontemplation stage. Among the at-risk women, exposure to the intervention was associated with being at a higher SOC and being less likely to relapse relative to the standard group. The SOC model has promise for use in social and public health service settings that serve women at risk or living with HIV.
