Leonard, Noelle R.; Rajan, Sonali; Gwadz, Marya V.; Aregbesola, Temi – Health Education & Behavior, 2014
The heightened level of risk for HIV infection among Black and Latino young men who have sex with men (YMSM) is driven by multilevel influences. Using cross-sectional data, we examined HIV testing patterns among urban YMSM of color in a high-HIV seroprevalence area (ages 16 to 21 years). Self-reported frequency of testing was high, with 42% of…
