Title:
Individual Interviews with African-American Women Regarding Condom Use: A Pilot Study
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34 years are disproportionally affected by HIV/AIDS.  Current prevention techniques, including education, have not had a significant influence on decreasing the rates of HIV and increasing safer sexual practices among African-American women. Current prevention techniques have had limited success among this population.  This pilot study is one step toward increasing our understanding of this serious problem and developing effective intervention to stem the tide of HIV infection in African-American women.  A grounded theory approach was used for this pilot study to address the processed unmarried, heterosexual, African-American women used to negotiate condom use with their sexual partner. Major concepts, categories and connections between the categories, and theoretical codes were identified in this study and can be used to predict, speculate, explain, and understand the reported behavior of the African-American women in negotiating condom use with their sexual partner.
