The purpose of this study was to test two modules of a theoretically based, gender- and culturally specific HIV intimate partner violence risk reduction intervention for Spanish-speaking Latinas. The themes of the modules were "¿Estás en una relación sana y segura?" (Are you in a healthy and safe relationship?) and "Mantenerse sana y segura" (Keeping yourself healthy and safe). An evaluative one-group, repeated measure design with measures collected at preintervention (N = 31), immediate postintervention (n = 26), and 1-month postintervention follow-up (n = 20) design was used to evaluate the intervention. Study results represent a small but significant first step toward an integrative approach to the prevention of two major and interrelated public health issues among an at-risk and underserved population.
