  1. Women's protective sexual behaviors: a test of the Health Belief Model.

    Article - En anglais

    Heterosexual transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has become a significant health issue for women.

    The present study describes the extent to which a sample of women from an urban area report making efforts to protect themselves from becoming infected with HIV through several protective sexual behaviors.

    Secondly, we assess the extent to which adoption of these protective behaviors can be explained by health beliefs and previous HIV testing.
