Non Random Attrition in Health Prevention Programs: a Meta-Analysis of Retention in Hiv Prevention Interventions

This meta-analysis examined effects of individual differences of prior knowledge, motivation, and behavior on retention in HIV-prevention interventions. The results indicated that people who have high knowledge, have high motivation to use condoms, or are high condom use are less likely to stay in the intervention than those who are low on these aspects. Moreover, low knowledge individuals stayed more than high knowledge individuals when the intervention was informational. Low motivation individuals stayed more than high motivation individuals when the intervention was motivational. Nonetheless, high condom users stayed more than low condom users when the intervention surrounded behavioral-skills training.
