Introduction The theoretical framework of this intervention project is the Community Participation Approach.

PAGE 6

Justification for research in Costa Rica The Ministry of Health of Costa Rica recognizes HIV/AIDS as a growing problem in the country According to UNAIDS/WHO, 11,000 (0.6%)? Costa Ricans were living with HIV/AIDS in 2001. In 2003 research conducted by the Monteverde Institute and the University of South Florida indicated the need to develop culturally appropriate HIV awareness and education materials targeted at men, women, and children.

PAGE 7

Justification of Sample UNAIDS/WHO (2004) indicates that women are more vulnerable to HIV infection and can be 2.5 times more likely than men to contract HIV/AIDS. there is a need for an intervention that addresses the specific needs of women there are time and money limitations, making the immediate community the most viable study population.

PAGE 8

Purpose/Goals To assess level of HIV knowledge among project participants and dispel any misconceptions that might be found To actively involve women from the community in the development of culture appropriate HIV/AIDS educational materials for their peers. This educational material may take the form of posters, t shirts, calendars, pamphlets or any other creative design the participants prefer. To increase knowledge of prevention strategies among women and the community at large.

Two Community Presentations The first will be held in the local community where the participants live. It will consist of the educational materials developed during our project, a follow up questionnaire on HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention and a short theatrical presentation from local student HIV/AIDS peer educators. The second presentation will be held at the Monteverde Institute and will include a scientific poster detailing the project objectives, methods and findings. The community guided educational materials created in the project will also be displayed at the second presentation.

PAGE 27

Risk/Benefit to Participants Benefits The women will not receive any compensation for their participation in this project. However, they will potentially increase their knowledge about HIV/AIDS and will receive up to date materials about prevention of the disease The study will potentially create an infrastructure for the dissemination of information and materials. Participants might feel empowered by their active participation in creation of materials that will benefit their community Risks There is a slight risk that the women may feel discomfort discussing issues related to sexuality and HIV.
