The effects on high-risk women in urban clinics of HIV intervention groups

Amita Dash.

Abstract
This study examines the results of an operation for behavioural changes that is available at an urban
primary health clinic in women at high risk for HIV infection. One hundred ninety-seven women participated in
a randomly allocated risk reduction group (HIV/AIDS) or comparison group (HIV/AIDS-AIDS) group. Five
group sessions focused on risk formation, skills training in the use of condoms, sexual assertiveness, problem
resolution and risk-cause self-management, and peer support in efforts to change were attended by women in the
HIV/AIDS intervention group. Women attended conferences on health subjects unrelated to AIDS in a
comparison group. During the three-month follow-up, the sexual communication and negotiating abilities of the
HIV/AIDS group were increased. Unprotected sexual intercourse had drastically dropped, and the usage of
condoms had grown from 26% to 56%. There was no difference for women in the comparative group. Socially
disadvantaged women can help reduce their risk of HIV infection. In primary health clinics that serve high-risk
and low-income patients, risk reduction behaviour changes interventions should be frequently delivered.

Key words: HIV, AIDS, Urban clinics, Health condition, Behavioural changes
