Objective: The aim of this study was to create a gender sensitive, culturally relevant intergenerational HIV prevention intervention designed for young African American women that is Web-based. Design: The content of this intervention was developed through partnering with HIV+ women from the local community and contains four components: a video of African American HIV+ women from the community sharing their wisdom, a chat room, topical linkages, email and data collection survey. The design will be actively demonstrated during the presentation.Parent, teen, and women living with HIV focus groups were utilized to validate the components of the intervention along with partnership building between city school system and an academic technology department. Population: 300 adolescent women (10th graders) enrolled in health classes in a public school system in the Northeast United States. Concepts and Variables: A pilot study that will use a quasi-experimental, partial crossover design is planned in which 150 adolescent women are assigned to the intervention and comparison conditions, respectively, with those assigned to the comparison condition crossing over after 6 months to receive the intervention. It is expected that the intervention will decrease these African American adolescent women’s tendency to compromise and go along with their boyfriend wishes but will also decrease their sexual activity, increase condom use, and increase self-efficacy for safer sex. Findings: Findings that will be shared are: 1) the challenges of creating a WEB-based prevention program, 2) lessons learned related to the use of the internet in nursing research, 3) making self-efficacy models gender sensitive and culturally relevant, and 4) the experience of involving women living with HIV/AIDS as participants in a prevention solution for their youth and their community. Conclusions/Implications: Use of Internet technology allows determination of African American adolescent women’s attraction to and interaction with specific intervention materials. <!--Abstract 13253 modified by 152.163.188.66 on 10-30-2002-->
