We assessed the beliefs of 49 college students regarding the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), condom use, and sexual behaviors related to AIDS prevention.
Roy's modes of self-concept, interdependence, and role function were used as a framework to find psychosocial determinants that influence safer sex practices.
Interdependence was measured by a sexual regard scale.
Beliefs regarding both AIDS beliefs and condom were very positive.
Students were selectively using safer sex practices; most reported avoiding high-risk partners, but only 39% were using condoms.
