An intervention program to prevent HIV infection and AIDS progression among intravenous drug users and sexual partners of intravenous drug users was designed and implemented to address knowledge, attitude and skill development. As precursors to behavior change, these factors were necessary to assure that sexual and drug-using behavior changes were attempted; however, the mechanisms for these changes were largely not reported in the literature. As a result, the program was structured so that an evaluation could determine the effectiveness of the overall program, as well as its various components.
