Young African Americans are highly disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). This study evaluates the effectiveness of a serial drama, delivered on local buses, at changing attitudes and/or behaviors among young African Americans. This research responds to the urgent public health need for structural interventions to reduce the risk of STIs, including HIV, in young African Americans.
