    The efficacy of the TBD intervention is assessed via the changes in targeted risk and protective measures on the pre and post TBD survey. Risk factor measures with multiple items is scored by taking the average of all items in the scale. Lower scores are indicative of less risk and of positive effects of the intervention. The average scores are: minimum =1 and maximum = 4.

    The efficacy of the SDS intervention is assessed via the SDS survey. The SDS survey is coded and scored by taking the average of all items in the scale. The higher scores are indicative of greater use of the SDS as an intervention strategy. The average scores are: minimum =1 and maximum = 4.

  4. Change in risk behaviors in BIMI Intervention Recipients [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months ]
