American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research, v9 n2 p1-21 2000
A survey of 100 American Indians in New York City examined sexual behaviors, lifetime HIV risk behaviors, substance use, sexual attitudes, experience of domestic or stranger violence, and HIV information needs and preferred information sources. Although relatively knowledgeable about HIV, respondents did not reflect that knowledge in safe sex behaviors. (Contains 46 references.) (SV)
