All men enrolled in protocol CTN-0018, a gender specific HIV prevention intervention, were administered a series of assessment instruments intended to examine the role of communication about condoms on condom use behaviors. The scales included the Condom Barriers Scale, Condom Use Skill, Sexual Behavior Inventory, and Condom Availability Survey. This poster describes the methods, study schema, and results of this baseline assessment, supporting the hypothesis that condom availability and prior communication about condom use are predictors of actual condom use among men in drug treatment. The results suggest that drug treatment programs may be appropriate venues to promote greater HIV/STD risk reduction behaviors by (1) Increasing availability of free condoms to patients; and (2) Incorporating communication skills training to men regarding their sex lives and condom use.
