In Washington, D.C., a program called "Healthy Choices, Healthy Sisters" seeks to promote safe sex for women. The peer-education program, from Family and Medical Counseling Service, a local health clinic, features a 10-week training program in which trainees go to drug rehabilitation houses and other locations to hold safe-sex education workshops for women. Issues such as how to negotiate condom use are discussed at the meetings. The women also distribute condoms on the streets, hoping to stem the spread of HIV.
