Description
  • Abstract

    Description: The child data set includes the responses of 579 children in families of which the reponses have been recorded of manual-based sessions done on groups of families with pre-adolescent children (9-11 years) and evaluated using a treatment versus no treatment repeated-measures design. Each session of the manual covers ten topics that include children's rights and responsibilities; parental styles; communication; puberty; hard to talk about issues; risky environmental influences; understanding HIV/AIDS; dealing with stigma; surviving loss and bereavement; developing support networks. The effect of the intervention was measured along all of these dimensions. This data set contains the responses of both the pre-test and the post-test. The responses of the pre- and post-test were merged into one data set.

    Abstract: The primary aim of CHAMP was to apply a community collaborative partnership model to the adaptation, implementation and evaluation of a family - and community-based HIV preventive intervention that targets pre - and early adolescents in South Africa. The CHAMP Family Program was developed for low income, urban and predominantly ethnic minority populations in the United States. CHAMP is a developmentally-timed HIV prevention programme targeting youth and their families before youth become sexually active (9-11 years) in Kwadwdangendlale, a peri-urban township located about 30km outside of Durban. The adapted CHAMP SA programme, also known as the Amaqhawe programme, was delivered through a series of manual-based sessions to groups of families with pre-adolescent children (10-11 years) and evaluated using a treatment versus no treatment repeated-measures design. Each session of the manual covers ten topics that include children's rights and responsibilities; parental styles; communication; puberty; hard to talk about issues; risky environmental influences; understanding HIV/AIDS; dealing with stigma; surviving loss and bereavement; developing support networks. The effect of the intervention was measured along all of these dimensions.

Sampled Universe
A group of 579 pre-adolescents and their caregivers (n=478) (parents/ guardians) were randomized to an experimental condition (treatment group) and a control group (no treatment group) The sample was recruited through 20 schools randomized to either condition to prevent contamination effects in four community areas. Potential study participants were required to meet the following criteria for inclusion into the study: Ages 9-13 years; raised by an adult caregiver over the age of 18 years that fulfils parenting responsibilities, enrolled in school provided consent to participate in the study via caregiver consent and child asse

Potential study participants were required to meet the following criteria for inclusion into the study: Ages 9-13 years; raised by an adult caregiver over the age of 18 years that fulfils parenting responsibilities, enrolled in school provided consent to participate in the study via caregiver consent and child assent. The manualised intervention was delivered over 10 weekends comprising ten-90 minute sessions by community caregivers trained as facilitators who also received supervision and on-going training by the project director and her staff.
