HIV prevention program gets a boost from NIMH recovery act funds
Date:5/26/2009

Developing interventions to reduce the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among heterosexual men, couples and ethnically diverse populations continues to be complex and challenging. To help address this issue, NIMH awarded a two-year grant to David Prez-Jimnez, Ph.D., at the University of Puerto Rico, to support the adaptation and assessment of an HIV and other sexually transmitted infection intervention designed for young, heterosexual Latino couples. This grant will use funds allocated to NIMH through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to promote economic recovery and spur advances in science and health.

"With Recovery Act funds, we're now able to support a number of meritorious and innovative research studies, such as proposed by Dr. Prez-Jimnez, that were simply out of reach of our existing budget," said NIMH Director Thomas R. Insel, M.D. "Our plan is to use Recovery Act funds not only to support meritorious proposals that were previously out of reach, but to supplement current efforts, expediting progress towards our goal of profoundly reducing HIV infection."

The researchers plan a two-part study to modify and test an HIV and other sexually transmitted infection prevention program according to the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills (IMB) model of behavior change. This program will be the only known intervention for young Latino couples based on the IMB model. Widely used in HIV/AIDS prevention research, this model is based on the premise that risk reduction and prevention behavior relies on having information about how HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections are spread. Participants also learn specific methods for avoiding infection, reasons to change their behavior, and behavioral skills to do preventive acts.[1]

The intervention focuses on:

  • Providing basic and accurate information about HIV/AIDs and safer sex practices
  • Discussing social norms and gende
