Behavioral intervention and education have been widely acknowledged as holding the greatest promise for slowing the spread of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In this study we assessed the relationship between constructs from the theory of reasoned action on condom use in a sample of 1,394 Filipina sex workers. Path analysis for observed variables was used to examine the relationship between attitudes, norms, and behavioral intentions on behaviors. All constructs were operationalized within the context of condom use during vaginal sex. Attitudes and norms were found to be predictive of behaviors as mediated through behavioral intentions supporting the validity of the theory of reasoned action. Implications for the development and focus of HIV preventative interventions are discussed.
