Abstract

Native American women are at increased risk for HIV infection, but few studies have studied this threat. To address this gap in the literature, we assessed HIV risk behavior and explored the hypothesized psychological antecedents of risk behavior in 53 Native American women. Survey results indicated that women's HIV-related knowledge was incomplete and many women still held misconceptions about HIV. One third of the sample reported having two tofive sexual partners in the past 5 years, and 30% of the women reported alcohol use prior to sexual intercourse. Women who were classified at higher risk, that is, who did not use condoms consistently, felt less vulnerable to HIV and were less ready to change their risky sexual behaviors compared with their lower-risk counterparts. These findings indicate that Native American women are at risk for HIV infection and can no longer be neglected by those seeking to prevent HIV infections. Culturally congruent and gender-specific interventions that provide information and behavioral skills to Native American women as well as increase their motivation to adopt safer sexual behaviors are needed.
