Using Multimedia Technologies to Disseminate an HIV Prevention Program for Couples

This RCT will randomly assign 40 of the CBOs to receive the Multimedia intervention and training package (Multimedia)and the other 40 to receive the original, manualized Connect intervention and training package (Traditional). The technology transfer process involves all agencies receiving four days of training and two planned technical assistance conference calls, by study investigative staff, in the first four months following training. Telephone assessments completed by up to 6 staff at each agency will measure primary outcomes, mediating, moderating and process measure variables at baseline, 6, 12 and 18 months post-technology transfer. The primary outcome of the study is adoptions of the Connect intervention. The unit of analysis is the CBO.
