From the Paper:

"Findings such as those observed by Kihara, Kihara, Ohya and Ichikawa (1998) lead to the question of whether prevention efforts in the United States are of benefit to foreign students, especially to students from South Korea. One study that sheds some light on this topic was conducted by Chou, Chin and Rodriquez (1998). In order to measure the effect of HIV 101 workshops on HIV knowledge, condom use self-efficacy, as well as intention to practice safer sex among immigrant and US-born Asians in New York City, the authors conducted a quasi-experimental, pretest-post test design. Subjects in the study consisted of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Korean, and Japanese workshop 101 participants."
