HIPTeens is a sexual-risk reduction program that targets nonpregnant, sexually active teenage girls. The program includes four weekly, 120-minute sessions. At 3 and 6 months after the initial intervention, two 90-minute booster sessions are offered. The intervention is delivered in small groups (6-10 girls) by trained program facilitators. The intervention (a) provides HIV and sexual health information, (b) strives to increase motivation to reduce sexual risk behaviors and (c) allows time to practice interpersonal and self-management skills that facilitate sexual risk reduction. The intervention uses developmentally appropriate strategies such as games, group activities and role plays to deliver program content.
