All enrolled participants are HIV+ adults seen for regular medical care at a site affiliated with the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. After consenting, participants will take an audio-assisted computer interviews to collect patient risk assessment data. For participants randomized to the intervention arm, the printed output on risk behaviors is then given to the provider along with cues for staged-based counseling for use during the same visit. Participants in the control arm take the same computerized risk assessment but there are no printed cue sheets. Risk behaviors of all participants are assessed at entry, at 6 months, and at 12 months. The main outcome measure is change in HIV transmission behaviors at 12 months for those in the intervention arm compared to the control arm.|
