Child Sexual Abuse and HIV/AIDS in Indian Country.
Vernon, Irene S.; Bubar, Roe
WICAZO SA Review, v16 n1 p47-63 Spr 2001
Victims of child abuse are at risk for contracting sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, not only directly through sexual abuse, but also because they engage in more high-risk behaviors. Because American Indian youth experience higher rates of sexual abuse and have less access to treatment and counseling, they are especially at risk. Challenges and recommendations are presented.
