Healthy Relationships

Logo for the Healthy Relationships Study

The Healthy Relationships Study will produce and pilot test for feasibility and acceptability an online education module for 14- to 18-year-old high school-attending US youth about sexually explicit media and HIV/STI risk behaviors. It will collect formative data from youth and school administrators and teachers, expert feedback, and pilot-test the intervention with sample of 40 youth. The goal of this study is to produce a new and innovative HIV prevention approach within a sexual health wellness framework (e.g., sex ed) that will help to build connections with community-based partners (e.g., school systems) to prevent new HIV infections among adolescents.
