Are sexual health interventions associated with improved sexual health outcomes in black adolescents?
In this systematic review and meta-analysis synthesizing results of 29 studies of 11 918 black adolescents, sexual health interventions were significantly associated with improved abstinence, condom use, sexual health intentions, sexual health knowledge, and sexual health self-efficacy compared with control conditions.
The findings suggest that sexual health interventions are associated with improved sexual well-being among black adolescents.
Black adolescents are at increased risk of contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and experiencing unplanned pregnancy. Although sexual health interventions aimed at decreasing these risks exist, evidence of the association between sexual health interventions and the sexual behavior of black adolescents has not been synthesized to our knowledge.
To examine the associations between sexual health interventions and behavioral, biological, and psychological outcomes.
For this systematic review and meta-analysis, a systematic search was conducted of studies published through January 31, 2019, using the PubMed, PsycINFO, and CINAHL databases and relevant review articles. The following key words were used: youth, adolesc* or teen*; sexual health or safe* sex or sexually transmitted disease or sexually transmitted infection or STD or STI or HIV or AIDS or pregnancy or reproductive health or condom* or contracept* or unprotected sex or abstinence; intervention or program or education or prevention or promotion or trial; latino* or latina* or latinx* or minorit* or ethnic* or hispanic or african american* or black* or race or racial or biracial.
Studies were included if they included a US-based sample of black adolescents, evaluated a sexual health intervention using experimental or quasi-experimental designs, included a behavioral outcome, and were published in English.
Data Extraction and Synthesis
Standardized mean differences and 95% CIs were extracted and meta-analyzed using random-effects models.
Main Outcomes and Measures
Behavioral outcomes were abstinence, condom use, and number of sex partners. Biological outcomes were pregnancy and STI contraction. Psychological outcomes were sexual health intentions, knowledge, and self-efficacy.
Across 29 studies including 11 918 black adolescents (weighted mean age, 12.43 years), there was a significant weighted mean association of sexual health interventions with improvements in abstinence (Cohen d = 0.14; 95% CI, 0.05-0.24) and condom use (Cohen d = 0.25; 95% CI, 0.11-0.39). No significant mean association of these interventions with number of sex partners, pregnancy, or STI contraction was found. Sexual health interventions were significantly associated with improvements in psychological outcomes: sexual health intentions (Cohen d = 0.17; 95% CI, 0.05-0.30), knowledge (Cohen d = 0.46; 95% CI, 0.30-0.63), and self-efficacy (Cohen d = 0.19; 95% CI, 0.09-0.28). Intervention effect sizes were consistent across factors, such as participant sex and age and intervention dose.
Conclusions and Relevance
The findings suggest that sexual health interventions are associated with improvements in sexual well-being among black adolescents. There appears to be a need for wide-scale dissemination of these programs to address racial disparities in sexual health across the US.
Black adolescents in the US are at increased risk for experiencing negative sexual health outcomes.1,2 Compared with white adolescents, black adolescents are twice as likely to become a parent before 20 years of age1 and more likely to contract sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV infection.2 Of importance, teen pregnancy is associated with negative life outcomes, such as high school dropout, incarceration, and unemployment,3 and costs approximately $21 billion each year in the US.4 In addition, long-term, untreated HIV infection and other STIs can result in infertility and death.5 With accurate information and skills and access to STI testing and birth control, black adolescents can be better equipped to avoid these negative outcomes.6,7
Ecological systems theory suggests that black adolescents may experience interpersonal, community-level, and systemic barriers to practicing healthy sexual behavior.8 Poverty,9 stress from discrimination and racism,10,11 and lack of access to health care differentially affect black adolescents12-15 and may be associated with poor general and reproductive health outcomes.15-19 Thus, it is critical to examine the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing sexual health disparities among this racial group.
The unique context of black adolescents’ sexual decision-making and experiences has guided the development of a number of interventions that have emerged during the past few decades. Many programs primarily target individual-level factors that affect black youth’s sexual health, such as knowledge, self-efficacy, and self-respect.20 A few programs target family-level factors, such as parental communication in black families.21-23 A community-level factor, cultural narratives on safe sex practices, was also the target for a sexual health program.24 Most of these programs have varied associations with sexual health outcomes. Intervention differences and other sources of clinical and methodologic heterogeneity may be responsible for these mixed results.21,25-27
Given the heterogeneity and discrepancies in study findings, the purpose of the current study was to synthesize the association of sexual health programs with sexual health outcomes among black adolescents and examine which intervention strategies are most beneficial. For the purpose of this study, sexual health interventions were defined as primary prevention programs that included some component aimed directly at encouraging abstinence or safer sexual behavior (eg, condom use) to reduce the risk of HIV infection, other STIs, and unplanned pregnancy. Several systematic reviews of sexual health interventions for black adolescents have helped to identify available interventions and the need for culturally tailored and accessible programs.28-31 Although there are several meta-analyses that evaluate the association of adolescent sexual health interventions with health outcomes and a few meta-analyses that evaluate this association among black individuals without a focus on adolescents,32-34 the unique barriers experienced by black adolescents in the US warrant an analysis of how current programming functions for these adolescents in particular. To our knowledge, there is no recent meta-analysis on sexual health interventions for black adolescents. Because of the wide racial disparities in sexual well-being, we sought to understand why some interventions are beneficial whereas others are not among black adolescents.
The first goal of this study was to systematically review the literature on sexual health interventions for black adolescents and conduct a meta-analysis of their overall association with 3 behavioral outcomes related to sexual health (abstinence, condom use, and number of sexual partners) and 2 biological outcomes (pregnancy and STI contraction).35,36 We also evaluated the association of interventions with 3 psychological outcomes related to sexual health behavior37,38 (sexual health intentions, sexual health knowledge, and sexual health self-efficacy).
The second goal was to identify components that contribute to the success of sexual health interventions in decreasing sexual risk behavior among black adolescents. We considered potential moderating variables of associations, including demographic (eg, sex and age), intervention (eg, cultural tailoring and dose), and methodologic (eg, length of follow-up) characteristics.
In this meta-analysis, we use the term black to refer to individuals in the US who are descendants of black racial/ethnicity groups of Africa, including descendants of enslaved Africans (although black is not capitalized throughout the manuscript, we are using this term as a proper noun to refer to a specific cultural group).39 When referring to specific empirical work, we use the terms of the original authors.
In January 2019, for this systematic review and meta-analysis, we conducted a comprehensive search of the PsycINFO, CINAHL, and PubMed databases to extract relevant studies published through January 31, 2019. We used the following keywords: youth, adolesc* or teen*; sexual health or safe* sex or sexually transmitted disease or sexually transmitted infection or STD or STI or HIV or AIDS or pregnancy or reproductive health or condom* or contracept* or unprotected sex or abstinence; intervention or program or education or prevention or promotion or trial; latino* or latina* or latinx* or minorit* or ethnic* or hispanic or african american* or black* or race or racial or biracial. Additional studies28-32,40-43 were located by examining prior reviews and meta-analyses and references of included articles. This initial search produced 3069 unique articles. This study followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) reporting guideline.
Studies were included if they met the following criteria: (1) included a US-based sample; (2) sampled black adolescents (ie, at least 95% of the sample was black; mean sample age ≤18 years and no participant >24 years); (3) evaluated the effects of a primary prevention, sexual health intervention (studies with already pregnant youths or STI-positive youths were excluded because of their focus on secondary prevention)44,45; (4) evaluated program effects using an experimental or quasi-experimental design; (5) included at least 1 of our behavioral or biological outcome measures; (6) were published in English; and (7) provided sufficient statistics to calculate effect sizes. When a study had a sample with multiple racial/ethnic groups but included subgroup analyses that evaluated intervention effects among only black participants, the results of the subgroup analyses were included.20,46 For studies with multiple follow-up points, we used the longest follow-up with adequate data to calculate effect sizes as the most conservative estimate of treatment effects. When multiple studies reported findings using the same data, the study that reported results for the longest follow-up with adequate data to calculate effect sizes was included. All other studies using the same data were excluded.47,48 For studies with more than 1 intervention group, we selected the sexual health intervention that was most comprehensive. When studies included more than 1 indicator for an outcome (eg, multiple indicators of condom use), we used a random number generator to select 1 indicator to reduce possible bias associated with outcome selection.
These selection criteria resulted in a final sample of 29 articles (eFigure 1 in the Supplement). From these articles, we calculated 22 independent effect sizes for abstinence, 26 for condom use, 10 for number of sex partners, 4 for pregnancy, 4 for STI contraction, 14 for sexual health intentions, 11 for sexual health knowledge, and 15 for sexual health self-efficacy. More information about these outcome variables, including how they were evaluated in primary studies, is given in eTable 1 in the Supplement.
Two of us (R.E., H.J., and/or M.N.S.) independently coded each of the primary studies. The following data were extracted: (1) demographic and sample characteristics, (2) intervention characteristics, and (3) methodologic characteristics. The mean percentage agreement across all coding categories was 92%. Discrepancies between coders were resolved through group discussion until a consensus was reached. Risk of bias was calculated for each primary study.49
As the indicator of effect size, the standardized mean difference, Cohen d, was used. The Cohen d can be interpreted as small (0.20), medium (0.50), or large (0.80).50 When the Cohen d statistics and 95% CIs were not reported, other statistics that could be converted to Cohen d were calculated using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis, version 351 and the Practical Meta-Analysis Effect Size Calculator.52 Study authors were contacted and data were requested when no statistics in the study could be converted to a Cohen d. Higher values indicate that the sexual health intervention group performed better than the control group for abstinence, condom use, sexual health intentions, sexual health knowledge, and sexual health self-efficacy. Lower values indicate that the sexual health intervention group performed better than the control group for number of sex partners, pregnancy, and STI contraction.
Random-effects meta-analytic procedures were used for the primary analyses across all independent effect sizes to allow for the possibility of differing variances across studies.53 To examine whether significant heterogeneity existed among effect sizes, we used the Q statistic and I2. For hypothesized categorical moderators, effect sizes and 95% CIs were calculated and then compared using the Qb statistic. Groups for categorical moderator variables must have included at least 2 studies to be considered in analyses. For categorical moderation analyses, mixed-effects models were used to allow for the possibility of differing variances across subgroups. Random-effects meta-regression was used to test continuous moderators. The Q model statistic was used to determine whether there was significant moderation for these models. A 2-sided P < .05 was considered to be statistically significant. Analyses were conducted using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis, version 3.51
A summary of the studies included in this meta-analysis is presented in Table 1. A total of 11 918 black adolescents (weighted mean age, 12.43 years) were included across 29 studies.20-27,46,52,54-56,58-73 Studies identified participants as African American (26 studies) and black (3). Most studies targeted mixed-sex samples; however, 10 included only girls and 3 included only boys.
Eighteen studies20,23-27,54-57,62,63,65,67-70,73 evaluated interventions with cultural tailoring. Twelve studies24,25,27,54-56,62,63,67-69,73 described using community-based participatory research methods to develop or adapt the programs. In addition, 9 programs included components aimed at promoting racial socialization (ie, messages about what it means to be black in today’s society).74 Only 1 program focused on abstinence only, whereas 27 programs were comprehensive. Intervention dose varied across studies, with 5 studies24,54,61,65,69 including less than 3 hours of training and 4 studies20,57,58,66 with more than 20 hours. Five studies54,61,65,69,71 specified that all participants received the full dose. Interventions were primarily delivered in schools (9 studies), community centers (11), or clinics (6). Many programs included partner sexual communication skills training (18) and condom use skills training (18). Eight programs included parents in intervention activities.
Risk of bias was calculated for each primary study (eTable 2 in the Supplement). Most studies (26 [90%]) had low risk of bias for random sequence generation, and 19 (67%) had low risk of bias for incomplete outcome data. However, risk of bias pertaining to selective reporting was unclear for many studies.21-24,26,27,54,55,57-63,65-73
Individual study effect sizes (Cohen d) for abstinence ranged from −0.48 (95% CI, −1.77 to 0.81) to 0.71 (95% CI, −0.02 to 1.44), with an overall weighted mean effect size across studies of 0.14 (95% CI, 0.05-0.24; P = .004), which indicated that sexual health interventions had a statistically significant association with abstinence among black adolescents (Figure 1 and Table 2). There would have to be 60 additional studies that were not statistically significant for the combined P value to exceed .05 (fail-safe N = 60).
There was significant heterogeneity among studies for the abstinence outcome (Q = 34.90, df = 21, P = .03, I2 = 39.83); thus, we examined moderators of intervention success (Table 3 and eTable 3 in the Supplement). Intervention setting and study publication year moderated the association between sexual health interventions and abstinence. School-based interventions (Cohen d = 0.25; 95% CI, 0.10-0.39; P = .001) had a stronger association with improvements in abstinence than interventions in community centers (Cohen d = 0.04; 95% CI, −0.07 to 0.16; P = .47). In addition, interventions reported in older studies had stronger associations with improvements in abstinence than interventions in studies published more recently (coefficient = −0.01; 95% CI, −0.03 to −0.001; P = .03).
Individual study effect sizes (Cohen d) for condom use ranged from −0.27 (95% CI, −1.04 to 0.51) to 0.82 (95% CI, 0.29-1.35), with an overall weighted mean effect size across studies of 0.25 (95% CI, 0.11-0.39; P < .001), which was statistically significant (Figure 2). On average, sexual health interventions had a statistically significant association with condom use among black adolescents (Table 2). There would have to be 292 additional studies that were not statistically significant for the combined P value to exceed .05 (fail-safe N = 292).
There was significant heterogeneity among studies for the condom use outcome (Q = 104.14, df = 25, P < .001, I2 = 75.99); thus, we examined moderators of intervention success (Table 3 and eTable 3 in the Supplement). Publication year moderated the association such that interventions reported in older studies had stronger associations with improvements in condom use than those reported in studies published recently (coefficient = −0.02; 95% CI, −0.04 to −0.01; P = .01). No other statistically significant moderators were identified.
The overall weighted mean effect size (Cohen d) for number of sex partners across studies was −0.06 (95% CI, −0.25 to 0.13; P = .54), which was not statistically significant (Table 2 and eFigure 2 in the Supplement).
Only 4 studies55,57,60,72 assessed pregnancy as intervention outcomes, and only 4 studies24,27,55,56 assessed STI contraction. The overall weighted mean effect size across studies was not statistically significant for both pregnancy (Cohen d = −0.16; 95% CI, −0.41 to 0.09; P = .20) and STI contraction (Cohen d = −0.07; 95% CI, −0.43 to 0.30; P = 73) (Table 2 and eFigure 3 and eFigure 4 in the Supplement).
Sexual health interventions were associated with improvement in 3 psychological outcomes: sexual health intentions (Cohen d = 0.17; 95% CI, 0.05-0.30; P = .007), sexual health knowledge (Cohen d = 0.46; 95% CI, 0.30-0.63; P < .001), and sexual health self-efficacy (Cohen d = 0.19; 95% CI, 0.09-0.28; P < .001). Effect sizes ranged from small to moderate.
This meta-analysis synthesized almost 30 years of research on the effectiveness of sexual health interventions among black adolescents in the US. Overall, results from 29 studies of 11 918 black adolescents showed that these programs have been successful. Sexual health interventions were significantly associated with improvements in abstinence, condom use, sexual health intentions, sexual health knowledge, and sexual health self-efficacy. With rates of HIV infection, other STIs, and unplanned pregnancy especially high among black adolescents,1,2 there is an urgent need to address factors that may lead to improvements in sexual decision-making among this group. This meta-analysis shows that sexual health interventions are an important part of the solution to this health crisis because these programs can promote healthy sexual behavior and psychological outcomes among black adolescents. These findings were consistent across factors such as participant sex, age, and intervention dose.
We found that sexual health interventions for black adolescents were associated with improvements in sexual health intentions, sexual health knowledge, and sexual health self-efficacy, which are psychological outcomes associated with positive behavior change.37,38,75 Most of the studies26,27,55,56,61 that we included assessed behavior change after only 12 months (at most), at which point many adolescents may not have become sexually active, making behavior change in sexual situations more difficult to detect. However, if this association of interventions with psychological outcomes persists, it is expected based on health behavior theory that when adolescents start to become sexually active, this association may lead to healthier sexual decision-making.38
No significant association was found between sexual health interventions and pregnancy or STI contraction among black adolescents. However, with only 4 studies55,57,60,72 reporting on pregnancy as an outcome and only 4 studies24,27,55,56 reporting on STI contraction, caution is warranted in interpreting this finding. Although it is time and resource intensive to collect information on biological outcomes, such as pregnancy, HIV infection, and other STIs, additional work is needed to determine whether current intervention strategies are effective at preventing these outcomes.34,76 After more studies evaluate the effectiveness of interventions on biological outcomes, another meta-analysis will be warranted to evaluate the long-term success of primary prevention sexual health programs.
Significant variability was found in the association between sexual health interventions and adolescent abstinence and condom use. Two significant moderators were identified: intervention setting and study publication year. Programs delivered in schools had a stronger association with abstinence than those delivered in community centers. Adolescents spend most of their waking hours at school77; thus, school-based sexual health education programs can reach a large number of teens. Only 24 states require sex education to be taught in schools despite 96% of parents in the US supporting school-based sex education.78,79 Implementing evidence-based (eg, comprehensive) sexual health programming in more schools may promote abstinence and be associated with reduced racial disparities in sexual health outcomes.80
Interventions reported in older studies had a stronger association with improvements in condom use among black adolescents than those published in more recent years. It is possible that over time adolescents have become more likely to use forms of contraception other than condoms, particularly intrauterine devices, as their primary form of birth control.81,82 Alternate methods (eg, intrauterine devices, birth control pills, and injectables) have become more accessible and cost-effective within the past decade.83 Hormonal birth control use is effective at preventing pregnancy but associated with decreased condom use84,85—a behavior pattern that is problematic because hormonal contraceptives and intrauterine devices do not protect against HIV infection and other STIs.86 This finding suggests that future interventions should incorporate components aimed at increasing dual contraception use to prevent pregnancy as well as contraction of HIV infection and other STIs. In addition, future studies should consider evaluating the effect of hormonal contraceptive use on adolescents’ change in condom use in response to sexual health programming.
This study has limitations. First, there was variability across studies in the measures used to evaluate sexual health outcomes. For example, in evaluating condom use, some studies55,56 asked about condom use exclusively during vaginal intercourse, whereas others24,55 asked about condom use during vaginal, oral, and anal sex. In addition, the time frame on which participants were asked to report varied. For example, in evaluating abstinence, some studies21,22 asked participants about lifetime sexual activity, whereas others26,58 asked whether participants had become sexually active after their participation in the intervention. Standardization of the methods used to assess adolescent sexual health outcomes may lead to more meaningful syntheses of research in the future.
Second, we hoped to more thoroughly report and analyze the participant characteristics that could influence intervention effectiveness. However, inconsistent and brief reporting of participant characteristics (eg, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation) across studies made this difficult. In addition, many of the studies87,88 that we reviewed for inclusion reported race with large “other” categories with no explanation of who was included in this group; thus, the racial composition of samples was difficult to determine. We encourage researchers to use online supplemental materials or spaces such as the open science framework or ClinicalTrials.gov to provide additional detail about their study design and participants. This approach would assist with data reproducibility and ensure thorough and high-quality synthesis of study characteristics and findings in future meta-analyses.
Third, many of the sexual health programs evaluated in this study demand adolescents’ time and resources; thus, only 5 of 29 evaluations reported that all adolescents received the full program dose. Emerging literature on intervention science highlights the importance of evaluating the appropriateness and feasibility of health programming to maximize the sustained success of evidence-based interventions.89 Although some studies included in this review evaluated fidelity,23,55,56,63 participant satisfaction,55,56,62,63,71 session attendance,21,46,67,90 and/or attrition,23,25,27,55,63,90 more comprehensive intervention evaluations are needed to understand why black adolescents may not receive the full program dose. We believe that researchers developing or implementing sexual health interventions for black adolescents should reduce barriers to activity or session attendance.
Fourth, technology-based interventions may aid in improving the accessibility and fidelity of sexual health programming.91-93 However, almost all of the interventions included in this meta-analysis were delivered primarily in person, with only 3 reaching adolescents through computer-based programming.46,61,65 This finding highlights an important avenue for future program development. If technology-based programs are developed, adolescents may be able to complete effective sexual health interventions on demand and at their convenience.
Fifth, although risk factors that affect health in black populations exist at all levels of the socioecological model,8,94 most interventions identified in this meta-analysis focused on affecting adolescent sexual health at the individual level. Individual-level variables (ie, knowledge, self-efficacy, and intentions) are important to the promotion of safer sexual decision-making; however, interpersonal,95 community-level,12,13,15 institutional,10,11 and structural9 barriers to the sexual health of black adolescents must also be addressed. Some studies had components aimed at increasing parental communication25,72 and challenging cultural narratives,24 which may be especially helpful.96 A few of the interventions in this meta-analysis were conducted with adolescents attending a clinic,54-56,61,69,71 and 2 programs provided short-term sexual health services (eg, an STI test)27,56; however, none of the interventions that we identified evaluated a component that facilitated adolescent access to long-term sexual health care services (eg, birth control counseling and regular STI testing). Programs that connect black adolescents to accessible sexual health services appear to be needed.
Results from this meta-analysis suggest that sexual health interventions are associated with increases in abstinence and condom use and improved sexual health knowledge, self-efficacy, and intentions. More thorough reporting of participant characteristics and details regarding intervention design and implementation may facilitate future research synthesis. These findings may inform important future directions for researchers, practitioners, and community members invested in improving the sexual health and well-being of black adolescents.
