  1. HIV risk differences between african-american and white men who have sex with men.

    Article - En anglais

    African-American men who have sex with men remain at disproportionately greater risk for contracting human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

    While high HIV seroincidence has been documented among homosexual African-American men, behavioral research has rarely studied the HIV risk issues confronting these men.

    This study assessed a sample of 253 men who have sex with men to determine if African-American (n=79) and white (n=174) men report different rates of HIV risk behaviors and differ in characteristics indicative of risk.

    African-American men who have sex with men were more likely to be HIV-seropositive, to report past treatment for gonorrhea and syphilis, and to have a recent unprotected sex partner known or believed to be HIV-seropositive.

    Multivariate analyses of covariance, controlling for group differences in age, education, and income, revealed that African-American men who have sex with men were less open about their sexual orientation, scored lower in HIV risk behavior knowledge, had more female sexual partners, and more frequently used cocaine in association with sex relative to white men who have sex with men.

    Human immunodeficiency virus prevention programs tailored to the needs and risk issues of African-American men who have sex with men are needed.
