dc.description.abstractWomen are increasingly becoming the new face of AIDS, and the number of cases for women continues to grow with the rates for the African-American female population, in particular, growing exponentially. This paper argues that the external factors within the African-American community influence the individual-level behavior of African-American women, and thus, increase rates of HIV among them. In this paper, I seek to illustrate how condom use can be predicted among African-American women and in turn, how condom use is related to the HIV risk behaviors that influence the disproportionate rates of HIV among these women.
