Condom self-efficacy is an important construct for HIV/STI prevention and intervention. This is a measure of self-efficacy for using condoms designed for Hispanic women (in Spanish or English). Either a 15-item measure or a brief 5-item version may be used. All items have a ten-point scale. Internal consistency of the full measure was good (Cronbach’s alpha = .92), as was the brief scale was (Cronbach’s alpha = .80). The total score of the brief scale was significantly correlated with the full scale total score, rs = .93, p < .001.
