Abstract:
The incidence of HIV infection has been increasing among Hispanic women at an alarming rate. An assessment was conducted concerning attitudes and behaviors about sex and safe sex practices of 28 young Hispanic women attending an alternative education program in South Tucson, Arizona. This study sought to discover if relationships exist between: HIV education and safe sex practices; level of acculturation and safe sex practices; and attitudes and safe sex practices. Findings were inconclusive regarding the association between level of acculturation and safe sex practices. HIV transmission knowledge does not appear to influence safe sex practices. However, several of the attitudes investigated do appear to influence safe sex practices.
