  1. Fulltext. Does the promotion and distribution of condoms increase teen sexual activity ? Evidence from an HIV prevention program for Latino youth.

    Article - En anglais



    Opponents of condom availability programs argue that the promotion and distribution of condoms increases adolescent sexual activity.

    This assertion was tested empirically with data from the evaluation of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention program for Latino adolescents.


    The onset of sexual activity, changes in the frequency of sex, and changes in the proportion of respondents with multiple partners were compared for intervention and comparison groups.

    Multivariate regression analysis was used to assess the effect of the intervention on these outcomes after adjustment for baseline differences between the intervention and comparison groups.
