  • Description:
    The Female Condom Skills Training (FEMIT) is a 4-session intervention designed to increase knowledge about safer sexual practices, condom use skills, and ability to negotiate condom use. The first 2 sessions (2 hours each) are delivered to individual participants by a health educator and focus on safer sex education, male and female condom use, and communication skills building. These 2 sessions include demonstration and practice of male and female condom use, address personal barriers to female condom use, and introduce and practice effective communication skills for talking to male partners about female condoms. The third session is conducted in small groups of 6-10 women and facilitated by 2 health educators. This 2.5-hour group discussion focuses on barriers to and eroticization of female condom use and negotiation skills building. The last session is a 30-minute telephone follow-up with each individual participant to review personal goals made during previous sessions, and to identify and address any additional barriers to female condom use. Participants also receive male and female condom supplies based on the reported amount of sexual activity.
