Detailed Findings

CitationDetails

Koniak-Griffin et al. 2008

This quasi-experimental study received a low rating because it did not establish baseline equivalence for the final analysis sample.

Lesser et al. 2009

Koniak-Griffin et al. 2011

This study evaluated the program with a randomized controlled trial involving high-risk mothers and fathers recruited from community-based locations in Los Angeles County, California. Couples were randomly assigned to either a treatment group that was offered the program or to a control group that received a 90-minute didactic HIV prevention curriculum. Surveys were administered immediately before the intervention (baseline), immediately after the intervention, and at follow-ups conducted three, six, and 12 months after the program ended.

The study found that across the baseline, three-month follow-up, and six-month follow-up, the proportion of males and females who reported having had sex without a condom in the past three months declined by a statistically significantly greater amount for the treatment group than for the control group. That effect was not sustained across the six-month and 12-month follow-ups: within that period, the proportion of males and females who reported having had sex without a condom in the past three months increased by a statistically significantly greater amount for the treatment group than for the control group.

Notes

Some study entries may include more than one citation because each citation examines a different follow-up period from the same study sample, or because each citation examines a different set of outcome measures on the same study sample. A blank cell indicates the study did not examine any outcome measures within the particular outcome domain or the findings for the outcome measures within that domain did not meet the review evidence standards.

Information on evidence of effectiveness is available only for studies that received a high or moderate rating. Read the description of the review process for more information on how these programs are identified.
