Cuídate Program

Tips for Parents

    *English
    *Spanish 


 ¡Cuídate! means “take care of yourself.” 
It is the theme of this culturally-based program designed to reduce HIV sexual risk among Latino youth. ¡Cuídate! helps youth develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills to reduce their risk of STDs, HIV/AIDS, and unplanned pregnancy. The program emphasizes risk reduction strategies such as sexual abstinence and correct condom use through interactive activities.
 
 
Who is it for?
 Spanish and non-Spanish speaking Latino youth who are between 13-18 years. This program  
 has been proven to be equally effective with boys and girls.
 
How is ¡Cuídate! Implemented?
 
• Seven 1-hour modules delivered over 2 or more days
 
• Sessions delivered to small groups of 6 to 10 youth
 
• HIV/AIDS knowledge, condom use negotiation, refusal of sex, and correct condom use skills
 
• Interactive games, group discussions, role-plays, videos, music, and mini-lectures
 
In Oregon, ¡Cuídate! will include a comprehensive contraceptive learning session in addition to the program’s emphasis on risk reduction strategies such as sexual abstinence and correct condom use.
