Resumen

To date, virtually no research has addressed individuals' characteristics which influence their participation in prevention interventions targeting the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Identification of these characteristics is important, for no intervention is effective if not attended. This study explored stage of condom adoption and selected other psychological and behavioral factors, to determine which of these predicted attendance at a clinic-based HIV intervention. Stage of condom adoption (p = .03) and frequency of drunkenness (p = .05) were significant predictors of attendance for persons with more than one sex partner. For persons with only one sex partner, self-efficacy and outcome expectations were identified. The implications of these findings are discussed.
