Investigated the effectiveness of strategies to maximize cohort retention in a longitudinal evaluation of a middle school human immunodeficiency virus/sexually transmitted disease prevention intervention. Retention rates of 80 percent at 6 months and 73 percent at 18 months were achieved. This required joint, proactive problem solving at the district, school, and teacher levels and cooperation at the student level. (SM)
