Rompe el Silencio (RES) [Break the Silence], funded by the USDHHS Office on Women’s Health, was designed to develop an intergenerational approach to increase HIV/AIDS female-driven family-based communication among Latina adult and adolescent dyads, to address gender-specific control of the particular contexts of HIV risk that Latinas face, and to reinforce cultural protective factors and communication strategies. To culturally sanction dialogue regarding sexual risk, RES included joint group discussions and cultural- and gender-congruent activities to facilitate interfamilial sexual health-related communication, and to promote an understanding of the importance of risk reduction efforts. Fifty Latina female family dyads from Los Angeles County participated in the pilot intervention, and findings from the qualitative phase of the research are presented in this new area of inquiry.
