Title

No Glove, No Love: A Qualitative Exploration of African American Female College Student Condom Use Self-Efficacy

Abstract

HIV/AIDS, along with sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) is a significant problem for African American females, who account for 50% of new HIV cases in the U.S. Many studies seek answers to why these diseases are being spread so rapidly and how to decrease transmission. This study investigates what factors affect African American female college students’ decisions to use, or not use condoms. A focus group was conducted with female African American undergraduate college students and results showed that sexual health education classes and discussing sex with parents are indicators of condom use practices.
