Abstract Objectives: The purpose of the study was to evaluate a randomized intervention to prevent high-risk HIV sexual behaviors for Latino women residing in urban areas. Methods: Mexican and Puerto-Rican women (N=657) aged 18 to 44 who were sexually active during the prior three months were recruited and randomized into intervention and control groups. The intervention, which as facilitated by bilingual, bicultural, trained Latino women, consisted of culturally tailored sessions on understanding their bodies, HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases, condoms (myths and use), negotiating safer sex practices, violence prevention and partner communication. Bivariate and multivariate analysis assessed changes from baseline. Results: The intervention was effective in improving condom use. Analysis of three month effects revealed a statistically significant rise in condom use among the intervention group when compared to the control group. Conclusions: The study demonstrated the efficacy of a culturally-sensitive intervention to reduce the risk behaviors of HIV/AIDS in Latino women. Key Words: Latino, Hispanic, HIV, condom use, prevention, women
