Project Summary:

This project’s aim was to expand the scope of the Barrier Methods study. This 2 year exploratory study supported intervention and instructional training with the female condom to both women and men at six sites, which were funded through NIDA’s Cooperative Agreement for AIDS Community-Based Outreach/Intervention Research (District of Columbia, Lexington/ Louisville, Raleigh/Durham, St. Louis, San Antonio, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). The purposes of the supplement were to introduce the female condom to high risk women and men at the six sites, to assess the acceptability of the female condom, and to examine correlates of its use.
