Mary M. Hatch-Maillette, PhD (Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute, UW, PN Node), Aimee N. C. Campbell, PhD, MSW (Columbia University, GNY Node).
This 90-minute webinar was presented as part of the Seattle STD/HIV Prevention Training Center webinar series, "Hard to Reach, Hard to Retain: Current Approaches to HIV Prevention and Care." It begins with an overview of HIV/AIDS incidence in the United States, then explains the connection between HIV/AIDS and substance abuse. There are three main intervention levels for HIV/AIDS prevention: biological (medication, e.g.), behavioral (risk reduction, e.g.), and structural (condom distribution, needle exchange, e.g.). Various research projects examining prevention interventions from the differing levels is described. The webinar also discusses the challenges clinicians and counselors face when trying to talk openly and comfortably with their clients about sexual issues. Aims, methods, and results from National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network protocols CTN-0018 and CTN-0019 ("Reducing HIV/STD Risk Behaviors : A Research Study for Men/Women in Drug Abuse Treatment") are presented, with a focus on "real world implications." The webinar ends with an overview of the pilot feasibility trial testing the efficacy of a culturally-adapted version of the CTN-0018 intervention for men (Real Men Are Safe (REMAS)) to make it more relevant to African American and Hispanic men.
