[para. 1]: "O'Leary et al. present important data regarding mediators and moderators of “Let us protect our future,” an intervention that was found to reduce self-reported intercourse and unprotected intercourse over a 12-month period among South African adolescents. This paper provides an important contribution to the literature on three major fronts. First, it examines HIV prevention variables in a high-HIV-prevalence area among youth who are beginning their sexual debut, and it examines both mediators and moderators in the same paper. Few papers do this, and even fewer in the HIV prevention literature. Too often, the focus in the literature is on outcomes, without sufficient data to support the theory on which an intervention is built."
