Condition

HIV/Acquired Immune Deficiency Virus (AIDS) prevention

Intervention

The unit of randomisation is the dealership, each dealership employing a staff of 40 - 100 people and an adjacent community where a large number of the staff live. Some 20 participating dealerships nationally will be allocated randomly to first wave or second wave of intervention. Although the dealerships are typically in well-to-do or commercial areas, the linked communities tend to be much more modest.

Workplaces are randomised after baseline survey, to early and late initiation of intervention.

Intervention:
1. AIDS prevention education
2. Sexual violence education
3. Participant involvement in community outreach education

The intervention lasts 4 - 6 months in each dealership, although aspects of this will continue well beyond the investment. For example, employees will be trained to implement the sexual violence prevention education, which they will continue to implement on an ongoing basis, once a week.

Control:
Usual education

The impact of the first wave of dealerships will be assessed after one year, while the second wave (controls for the first wave) will be assessed a year later.
