We adapted the Healthy Love Workshop (HLW), an HIV prevention workshop for African American women in the United States, for African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) women in Toronto, Canada. We conducted a pilot study with ACB women (n = 80) in ten community-based settings with pre-test (T1), post-test (T2) and three-month follow-up (T3) surveys. Mixed-effect regression results indicated significant increases in condom use self-efficacy and sexually transmitted infection (STI) knowledge scores from T1 to T3. Qualitative feedback revealed increased STI knowledge, confidence using condoms and suggestions for future HLWs. Findings highlight the promise of the adapted HLW for HIV/STI prevention with ACB women in Canada.
