5141.0 Health and Sexuality

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 12:30 PM
This section includes presentations examining various aspects regarding health and sexuality. Presentations will discuss correlates of recent unprotected sex; correlates of positive HSV-2 results; correlates of HPV vaccine acceptance among college-aged males; a culturally and linguistically relevant HIV/AIDS prevention program among a Latina population; and a three part sexual educational intervention incorporated into services at a young men's clinic.
Session Objectives: At the end of the session, the participant will be able to: (1) Understand young menís need for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) education and services and the lack of infrastructure available to provide it; (2) Recognize the positive sexual health outcomes associated with the provision of male sexual health education; (3) identify factors that are most likely to be associated with negative intent to be vaccinated against HPV among young males attending college.
