This study is a cluster-randomized controlled trial of a peer-led multilevel and multi-component HIV intervention among women at high risk in China. The intervention is tested on 712 women working in the entertainment industry, divided at random into two groups. Both groups receive standard voluntary counseling and testing (VCT). The intervention group receives additional motivation-enhancing and gender-specific empowerment skills trainings delivered by trained peer educators, peer outreach, and a structural intervention to promote social, normative, and working environments supportive of HIV risk reduction. The intervention's efficacy is evaluated through assessments of self-reported HIV risk and preventive behaviors and newly detected STIs at 3-, 6-, and 12-month follow-ups.
