Sexual Risk Behaviors Among HIV-Positive Black Men Who Have Sex With Women, With Men, or With Men and Women: Implications for Intervention Development
August 14, 2009
The study authors compared demographics and sexual and drug risk behaviors among HIV-positive black men who have sex with women only, with men only, or with men and women as a way to assess differences among and between these groups.
"HIV-positive black men with both male and female sexual partners engaged in more sexual and drug risk behaviors than did their heterosexual and homosexual peers," the authors concluded. "More information concerning the prevention needs of behaviorally bisexual HIV-positive black men is needed."
