Academic Journal
The article discusses a review and meta-analysis of the peer reviewed HIV prevention intervention from 1985 to 2003 conducted in order to examine the extent to which different theoretical models can effectively inform effective risk reduction interventions. The review included data from HIV-prevention interventions as well as 99 control groups. The review makes an important contribution to the HIV-risk reduction literature and is highly recommended reading for anyone developing or implementing sexual health education programming in general. It will be useful in identifying what types of intervention strategies will work best with different audiences.
