Brief Program Description

Although adolescent sexual minority males (ASMM) are at increased risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States (US), studies that estimate sexual risk behaviors that contribute to HIV risk in ASMM are limited. This session will discuss the results of a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the prevalence of HIV risk behaviors in this population. Understanding HIV risk in ASMM can help in intervention development. This session will also demonstrate the teen-SPARC online interactive tool, designed to help explore the potential impact of behavior change on reducing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among the sexually active, high-school-attending population.
