The number of older adults living with HIV/AIDS is larger than ever. Little is known about their sexual behaviors, although contrary to stereotypes, older adults desire and engage in sexual activity. Despite increased recognition of the need for prevention interventions targeting HIV-positive individuals, no secondary HIV prevention interventions have specifically targeted the older HIV-positive adult. Efforts to target high-risk sexual behaviors may be even more critical in the older population because of sociocultural, biological, and behavioral vulnerabilities. In response, Project ROADMAP (Reeducating Older Adult in Maintaining AIDS Prevention) intervention was developed to reduce high-risk sexual behaviors among older HIV-positive patients in primary care clinics. The purpose of this article is to report the 6-month outcomes of a behavioral intervention designed to reduce sexual risk behaviors in older HIV-positive adults.
