A Community-health Worker Delivered HIV/STI Prevention Intervention for Internally Displaced Women in Leogane, Haiti
Development and Evaluation of a Community Health Worker Delivered HIV/STI Prevention Intervention for Women Living in Internally Displaced Persons Camps in Leogane, Haiti
The investigators will develop, deliver and evaluate a solar powered tablet-based individual and group focused HIV/STI prevention intervention with internally displaced women in Leogane, Haiti. Internally displaced women will be trained as community health workers to deliver the HIV/STI prevention intervention to other internally displaced women.
We will develop and field test a multi-component intervention that includes (1) solar-powered tablets with brief video-based educational messages and (2) 6 weekly peer-group sessions. The tablet will be programmed to analyze the data and to indicate incorrect HIV knowledge responses so the community health worker can immediately provide correct responses. This intervention involves 6 weekly women's health meetings that will cover a variety of issues pertinent to women's sexual health: HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, interpersonal relationships, communication and decision making, mental health and coping, creating social change.
