Title:
Development and Pilot of an Internet STI-HIV Prevention Intervention (I-STIPI) Among Chilean Young Women
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Introduction: Chilean young women between 18 to 24 years old (CET) are at higher risk of contracting STI and HIV. The higher prevalence of STI including HIV among CET and the associated risk factors and barriers that increase CET’s risk of acquiring STI and HIV indicate that a prevention intervention for this group of women is needed. The literature shows a shortage of STI-HIV prevention interventions focused on this population. Methodology: This study will develop and pilot an internet STI-HIV prevention intervention (I-STIPI) among CET. The design is divided into two phases: (a) development and b) piloting. The development of the I-STIPI will include the adaptation of the contents of an HIV prevention intervention call Hand to Hand-Woman (#RO1 TW006977,PI Cianelli) with groups of experts. Additionally, the development phase will include the creation of the I-STIPI website. The pilot phase is a prospective cohort study in a sample of 40 CET in Santiago, Chile. The pilot phase will include an assessment of the acceptability, feasibility of the I-STIPI and a preliminary test of the change in STI-HIV prevention related outcomes. Results: This is the first study that evaluates the adaptation, acceptability and feasibility of an intervention delivered through the internet in Chile, representing an innovation in the form of delivering STI-HIV prevention. Furthermore, the result of this study will be a STI-HIV intervention refined to the needs of this group of women, which in future studies can be implemented for all Chilean young women and women in other Latino Countries. Conclusion: Though this innovative initiative women maybe benefit through the reduction of barriers for accessing preventive interventions and increasing interest in prevention programs.
