  1. Health beliefs as predictors of HIV-preventive behavior and ethnic differences in prediction.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence of a variety of safer-sex behaviors was predicted, using five measures from the Health Belief Model (Janz & Becker, 1984) : perceived susceptibility, perceived severity, self-efficacy, social support, and perceived barriers.

    The participants, 424 U.S.

    Undergraduates at six schools, completed a written questionnaire.

    The results of multiple regression analyses indicated that perceived susceptibility, self-efficacy, and social support predicted many safer-sex behaviors.

    Although the Health Belief Model predicted more safer-sex behaviors for Euro-American students than for Hispanic American, African American, and Asian American students, the present data indicated few differences among these ethnic groups regarding the level of safer-sex behaviors.
