Proposed Project: Multisite Evaluation of the In Community Spirit Program—Prevention of HIV/AIDS for Native/American Indian and Alaska Native Women Living in Rural and Frontier Indian Country (NEW)—OMB No. 0990-NEW—Office on Women's Health (OWH).

Abstract: The Office on Women's Health (OWH), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, will conduct the Multisite Evaluation of the In Community Spirit Program—Prevention of HIV/AIDS for Native/American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Women Living in Rural and Frontier Indian Country (In Community Spirit Program). The In Community Spirit Program is an initiative comprising three types of program components being implemented with women in AI/AN communities for HIV prevention: (1) Community awareness, (2) capacity building, and (3) prevention education. The multisite evaluation will provide data on the content and context of programs and the outcomes of program activities on participant knowledge and behavior related to sexual health.

The multisite evaluation is comprised of two main activities across three program components: (1) Surveys and (2) key informant interviews. There are two versions of key informant interviews: baseline and follow-up. There are also two versions of the survey: (1) Community Awareness Version for administration with women targeted through the community awareness activities and (2) Prevention Education Version to be administered to women who receive prevention education through the program.

The average annual respondent burden is estimated below. The estimate reflects the average annual number of respondents, the average annual number of responses, the time it will take for each response, and the average annual burden across 3 years of OMB clearance, which includes 2 years of data collection.
