Hiv, Std, And Hepatitis Risk In The Week Following Release From Prison: An Event-level Analysis
Journal Of Correctional Health Care
Event-level analyses present data on sexual and drug-related behaviors of men, ages 18 to 29 years, in the first week after release from prison. A calendar-based recall assessment reports type of sexual event, type of partner, condom use, and co-occurrence of sex and alcohol/drug use. The authors compare men who initiated sex on the first day postrelease to those who initiated sex on subsequent days. Results indicate a significant amount of sexual behavior occurring on Day 1 and that Day 1 initiators accumulated significantly more sexual events. Men were more likely to use condoms for their first sexual event but not thereafter. Data indicate a need for targeted and individualized prevention programming before release from prison.
