Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


High-risk male adolescents were surveyed to collect data to be used to develop strategies to enhance communication with their partners about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Participants were concerned about acquiring an STD from their partner, and reported an increased likelihood of communicating about STD-related issues when confidential health care was available.
