Review: health education interventions offering information plus sexual negotiation skill development promote increased condom use in women

 QUESTION: Do health education interventions promote sexual risk reduction behaviours associated with the transmission of human papillomavirus (HPV) in women?

Data sources

Studies were identified by searching the Cochrane Controlled Clinical Trials Register (1998, issue 4), Medline (1992–8), EMBASE/Excerpta Medica (1993–8), ERIC (1994–7), PsycLIT (1996–7), the Social Science Citation Index (1994–7), and handsearching selected journals and reference lists.

Study selection
