Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

The Aboriginal genital health (AIDS/STD) programme is an innovative attempt to integrate the issues of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) into a health promotion programme for Aboriginal people. The objectives of this study were to undertake needs assessment, develop a programme plan and, to perform a pilot implementation and evaluation of the Programme. The setting was a rural township and associated communities in the Darwin region. Extensive consultation and negotiation with community members and local organisations was undertaken. A need for an AIDS/STD health promotion programme was identified. A programme plan was developed and process evaluation indicated that goals and objectives of the programme were appropriate and the strategies and methods were acceptable to the target group. A decentralisation of programme control utilising the 'train-the-trainer' model is recommended.
