and b) using condoms, including the female condom; and 5) skills m cleaning
injection drug equipment. The aims of Phase II are to: 1) produce four
15-minute videos; 2) produce a comprehensive facilitator's guide that includes
participant handouts; 3) evaluate the effectiveness of the program in changing
knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of women in drug treatment to reduce risk
for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. The evaluation will be
conducted using a randomized treatment, longitudinal quasi-experimental design
in four treatment centers in each of two cities: Chicago and Los Angeles.
