Landmark Study Shows Behavioral Interventions Reduce HIV-Related Sexual Risk Behavior

on has made elimination of racial disparities in health status a top priority.

The study is unique among trials of group HIV prevention interventions in its examination of change in self-reported sexual risk practices, such as consistent use of condoms, as well as in objective indicators provided by reviewing participants' STD clinic charts.

NIMH initiated the Multisite HIV Prevention Trial in 1990 in response to directives from Congress to develop a risk reduction intervention based on current best practices in HIV prevention, and to test its efficacy with understudied and disadvantaged populations at multiple sites across the U.S.

The research is published in the June 19, 1998 issue of Science. The seven sites were:

  • Columbia University, New York City
  • Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey
  • Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia
  • The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland
  • The Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • UCLA, Los Angeles, California
  • UC-Irvine, Irvine, California

The study was coordinated by NIMH and the Research Triangle Institute in Durham, North Carolina.

NIMH is one of the 18 institutes that make up the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
