A post-test (Time 2) was conducted at both schools. The intervention was repeated at School 2, followed by another post-test (Time 3) at both schools. …
Adolescent girls imprisoned in state reformatories were recruited (N=246) to an 18-month health education or HIV prevention program.

At 9 months of follow-up, girls in both groups reported less sex under the influence of alcohol or drugs and less unprotected sex.
