  • Description:
    Focus on the Future is an individual-level, clinic-based, single-session intervention designed to address the common errors made and the multiple problems experienced by young African American heterosexual men when using condoms. In addition to the standard care at public STD clinics (i.e., disease-specific diagnosis and treatment, nurse-delivered condom-use information, and access to free condoms), the 45 to 50 minute one-on-one intervention provides information, motivation, and skills to increase men’s ability to use condoms correctly and consistently. The intervention is delivered by lay health advisors, who are African American men from the participants' community, selected based on their ability to quickly establish rapport and effectively communicate with men about sex and condom use in a non-judgmental manner. The lay health advisor provides information about the variety of condoms and proper lubricants, motivates the participant to protect himself and to respond personally to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the African American community, and increase the participant’s condom application skills through demonstrations and practice. Additionally, the lay health advisor helps the participant link condom use to an investment in his future. Each man is given pocket-sized lubricants and allowed to select 12 or more condoms from a wide variety of brands and sizes.
