  • Description:
    SHIELD is a small-group, interactive intervention that relies on peer networks to reduce drug and sex risk behaviors. Participants are asked to make public commitments to increase their own health behaviors and to promote HIV prevention among their networks and community contacts. The intervention includes multiple training and skill building sessions that involve setting goals, role plays, demonstrations, and group discussions. In addition, one session occurred in the community and provided a “street outreach” practice session. These sessions teach participants techniques for personal risk reduction and the development of correct condom use and safer sex negotiation skills. The intervention also addresses injection drug use risk and the avoidance of risky situations. To present HIV risk within a broader community context, the intervention emphasizes the interrelatedness of HIV risk among individuals, their risk partners, and their community. Participants are also provided tools and strategies for effective community outreach, and are encouraged to conduct HIV education and become advocates of risk reduction among their sex and drug partners, family and friends, and other community members.
