Abstract

In a population-representative sample of 202 18-24-year-old women in a neighborhood with widespread injection of drugs and HIV, 14% reported unprotected anal sex with men in the past year. Independent significant predictors were illegal drug use, having a main partner who takes the lead in deciding what to do during sex, and less self-deception. Having ever had anal sex was associated with having ever been infected with hepatitis B.
