In development.

E-WORTH (Empowering African-American Women on the Road To Health) is a combination self-paced and group-based HIV prevention intervention for African American women on probation. The goal of the intervention is to build positive peer norms and social support for HIV risk reduction. E-WORTH is a collaboration between the Social Intervention Group (SIG) and CCNMTL. It builds on CCNMTL and SIG's previous intervention projects to provide a suite of self-paced computer-supported activities for participants, and to include a narrative and cast of video characters who help lead participants through the intervention exercises.

E-WORTH is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and is part of a 4-year study to test the efficacy of computer-supported versus traditional paper-based intervention models.

The E-WORTH is a Triangle Initiative project.
