A Network Intervention for Prevention of HIV Infection in Chennai, India - 1
Supplement to the Long-term Impact of a Network Outreach Intervention

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a peer-based HIV prevention intervention that targets active injection drug users and their drug and sex partners in Chennai India.

The intervention to be tested in this study draws upon theoretical and empirical evidence suggesting that peer educator programs can have significant effects on the risk-related behaviors of both the educators and the peers whom they educate. Specifically, through group and individual focused sessions, participants learn and practice skills designed to reduce drug and sex related risk behaviors. Furthermore, individuals and their main risk partners attend a training session that focuses on risk reduction within their relationship.
