Program Summary

“¡Cuídate! (Take Care of Yourself)” is a culturally tailored program designed specifically for Latino youth. The program is an adaptation of the Be Proud! Be Responsible! program. ¡Cuídate! emphasizes Latino cultural beliefs to frame abstinence and condom use, as culturally accepted and effective ways to prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. The focus of ¡Cuídate! is to increase each participant’s skill level and self-efficacy in communicating and negotiating with sexual partners about abstinence and condom use. The program also helps teens develop the technical skills they need for correct condom use. ¡Cuídate! provides important information about the causes, diagnosis, transmission, and prevention of HIV and STDs, as well as the risk of HIV infection for Latino youth.
