Psychosocial Determinants of Risk Taking and Preventive Behavior Related to HIV and AIDS among Male Homosexuals

The study identifies and examines the psychological and social factors associated with risk-taking and preventive behaviors of 200 male homosexuals in Metro Manila. An understanding of these behaviors and their factors is of paramount importance considering the health threats posed by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Personal interviews and focused group discussions are employed as research methods. Findings are used as basis for designing an educational program for homosexuals.
