Using the Social-Ecological Model of HIV Prevention to Explore HIV Testing Behaviors of Young Black College Women.
The purpose of our study was to explore HIV testing behaviors and attitudes among young Black women ages 18-24 years in southern North Carolina (N =17) using a semi-structured interview based on the Socio-Ecological Model. The findings showed that individual, interpersonal, social, and organizational factors contributed to participants' testing behaviors and attitudes. Understanding the factors that influence attitudes and intention for HIV testing among young Black women will inform the development of culturally congruent prevention interventions and programs.
