Abstract

Latinas are nearly 3 times more likely to acquire AIDS than other women in the United States. It is critical to understand this vulnerability and to identify predictors of risk. Structural equation models wereused to test predictors, mediators (including components of the health belief model), and sex-related outcomes and behavior. Interview datawere collected from a random, cross-sectional community sample of 227sexually active Latinas (M age = 32 years). Acculturation was associated with higher HN-related risks within primary relationships. Older Latinas were less likely than younger Latinas to make behavior changes or use barrier methods of contraception to prevent HIV, and they had higher rates of unintended pregnancies. Marriage was related to greaterrelationship risk and less behavior change. Theoretical models must account for ethnicity, race, and culture to understand better unwanted sexual outcomes for Latinas, including HIV risks. Strategies are needed that specifically address these issues in HIV prevention and counseling programs.
