In a study that focused on locating sex education information on the Internet, out of nearly 6 million web pages identified by key word searches, only 41 pages provided relevant, educational information and many of these contained subjective or incomplete content, or reinforced `myths'.The other pages consisted of advertisements, personal home pages and organizational position statements (Smith ., 2000).The future for such intervention appears bright, with advantages such as cost-effectiveness, convenience and `mass media' ability to reach many persons with relevant, tailored information (Gustafson ., 1999).There are, however, some important considerations for Internet intervention, including barriers we face in implementation.Access to the Internet is currently estimated at 130 million US households (A. Nielson Survey, 2000) and there is some evidence that the Internet is becoming increasingly available to groups that previously had limited access (Lake, 2000; Mandl ., 2000).However, while some have maintained that the digital divide is shrinking, Internet sites indicate an under-representation of individuals with less than a high-school education, non-whites and households whose income is less than 000 (US Department of Commerce, 2000).

A poll by Louis Harris & Associates indicates that the Internet was used as a healthcare information resource by approximately 60 million US adults (Gustafson ., 1999).The data demonstrate the Internet may facilitate health promotion among MSM who may not be reached in a publicly funded STD prevention setting.The Internet may also act as a good adjunct to STD information obtained in clinic settings among those who seek STD testing.., 2000).This paper discusses barriers to Internet intervention strategies specific to STDs, including HIV prevention from the perspective of Internet users who participated in an online survey of risk behaviors related to acquisition of and transmission of STD/HIV.Barriers to STD/HIV Internet interventions are multiple; they include uncertainty regarding efficacy, questions about quality of information available online, privacy, access to information and methodological concerns.
