Safe in the City

Safe in the City

Three couples deal with STDs and learn about condoms in this video-based waiting room intervention. A CDC study found that Safe in the City lowers STD incidence among STD clinic patients by nearly 10%.

Safe in the City is a 23-minute HIV/STD prevention video designed for STD clinics that can be easily integrated into the clinic waiting room, requires very little staff time to set up with no disruption to clinic flow, and requires no counseling or small-group facilitation.
