The Interaction of Sexual Identity With Sexual Behavior and Its Influence on HIV Risk Among Latino Men: Results of a Community Survey in Northern San Diego County, California
December 12, 2008
To inform efforts to reduce Latinos' HIV risk, the authors of the current study examined the sexual behavior, sexual identities, and HIV risk factors of a community sample of Latino men.
"Latino men who have a heterosexual identity and bisexual practices are at greater risk of HIV infection, and efforts to reduce HIV risk among Latinos should target this group," the authors concluded.
