A Comprehensive Test of the Health Belief Model in the Prediction of Condom Use among African American College Students.
Winfield, Evelyn B.; Whaley, Arthur L.
Journal of Black Psychology, v28 n4 p330-46 Nov 2002
Tested an expanded version of the Health Belief Model (HBM) in predicting condom use among heterosexual African American college students. Overall, only the core HBM explained a significant amount of variance in condom use. Perceived barriers and gender significantly predicted condom use. Perceived barriers mediated the correlation between gender and condom use. High levels of HIV/AIDS knowledge did not correlate with condom use. (Contains references.) (SM)
