Effects of Spirituality on YBMSM Condom Use
Young, Black gay, bisexual, and other MSM (YBMSM) are at high risk of HIV infection. Therefore, condom use is an important part of any multi-pronged strategy to address the spread of HIV. Understanding how social and community factors, such as spirituality, affect YBMSM's self-efficacy to use condoms is often underappreciated, but is critical in the design and implementation of HIV prevention programs. While spirituality has been shown to serve a protective role in the lives of many in the Black community, it may serve a less positive role in the lives of YBMSM.
