Proposed Project: Evaluation of HIV Prevention Program for Women—OMB No. 0990—New-Office on Women's Health (OWH).
Abstract: The Office on Women's Health (OWH) is seeking a new clearance to conduct data collection activities associated with the three-year evaluation of HIV/AIDS prevention programs at minority institutions for college women. The evaluation will assess the effectiveness of gender-centered HIV prevention models employed to address the needs of college women attending six (6) Historically Black Colleges and Universities, four (4) Hispanic Serving Institutions, and two (2) Tribal Colleges and Universities. Evaluation data will assess the extent to which gender sensitive interventions employed by these institutions impact HIV/AIDS related knowledge, attitudes, and risk behaviors. Results of the evaluation will identify the prevention outcomes for college women and the larger campus population.
The program goals are to (1) Identify effective methods to educate and increase awareness for prevention of HIV/AIDS and STDs; (2) develop capacity for young, minority women to address prevention education on campus; (3) establish partnerships and student organizations to increase health education, risk reduction, counseling, HIV/STD testing and (4) to ensure that the education is culturally and linguistically appropriate for young, minority women. HIV intervention recipients will complete a survey at pretest, post-test, and follow-up that assesses their HIV/AIDS knowledge, risk behaviors and gender specific attitudes. Student data will be submitted on a quarterly basis. Peer facilitators/health educators will participate in a yearly interview and project implementation staff will participate in individual interviews twice during each program year that assesses their experiences with the program.
