An HIV/Methamphetamine Intervention Program for At-Risk Minority Youth: the Wheel Club (Wholistic Health Education and Empowerment for Life).

Andrew S. Walters PhD, MPH

The WHEEL Club is a culturally-grounded HIV/Substance use prevention program developed for 12- to 15-year-old minority youth. Within the U.S., HIV incidence rates among ethnic/racial minority populations far exceed rates among Caucasians. Unprotected partnered sexual contact and substance use are independent risk factors for HIV seroconversion. The WHEEL Club is a multi-cultural model of HIV prevention for Latino youth. The WHEEL curriculum uses both Western and non-Western learning modalities. Cultural stories, role plays, skill practice, and art are integrated into a holistic program.
