Proposed Project: HIV/AIDS Prevention and Support Service for Women Partners of Incarcerated/Recently Released Men—OMB No. 0990-New- Office of Women's Health

Abstract: The mission of the Office on Women's Health (OWH) is to provide leadership to promote health equity for women and girls through sex/gender-specific approaches. To that end, OWH has established public/private partnerships to address critical women's health issues nationwide including cooperative agreements awarded to eight community-based organizations in 2009 to design and implement innovative and gender responsive HIV prevention programs to meet the unique risks and needs of women within their communities who have currently incarcerated or recently released male partners (“women partners”). The information presented in this evaluation study is needed to determine the overarching outcomes of the set of the eight programs. The three-year study will include quantitative data collected at three time points, intervention baseline, post-intervention, and 30 day follow-up. The study will also include qualitative data collected through focus groups facilitated with program participants at each of the eight program sites, as well as interviews with one to two key intervention staff at each of the program sites.
