  • Description:
    Healthy Love is a single-session, small-group (4-15 women) intervention delivered to preexisting groups of black women (e.g., friends, sororities) in settings of their choosing. It delivers HIV prevention information and teaches condom use skills in a highly interactive, festive, and non-judgmental manner. Healthy Love eroticizes safer sex and creates a safe space where women can connect with their sexuality in ways that are positive and selfloving, rather than shameful or degrading. Activities are designed to empowe r women to share their personal stories about heterosexual relationships and HIV risks, and to increase their capacity to take protective actions. This is accomplished by helping participants improve their knowledge about transmission and prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), self-efficacy for condom use and negotiation, and attitudes about HIV testing. The Healthy Love session consists of 3 modules containing an opening, 11 content-focused components, and a closing. The first 3 components provide basic information (HIV/AIDS facts, STI facts, and the Look of HIV). The remaining 8 interactive components engage group members on topics such as rating their personal risks for contracting HIV and other STIs, practicing correct male and female condom use, negotiating condom use with male partners, and demonstrating their increased knowledge concerning HIV risks and protective actions. At the end of the workshop, participants receive male and female condoms, dental dams, HIV risk reduction brochures, and information on where to obtain HIV counseling and testing services.
