Abstract: AIDS, a worldwide concern, is especially a risk for Haitian immigrants living in the United States. Due to cultural barriers, the threat of stigma, and alternative health beliefs, many Haitians avoid public health services that provide helpful information about HIV and AIDS. The present study investigated how both psychological and social influences influence Haitian adolescent sexuality in Florida during a time of AIDS danger. Participants (aged 13-18 yrs.) responded to a 37-item survey that assessed their knowledge pertaining to HIV transmission, their attitudes towards condoms, and their self-perceived vulnerability to contracting HIV. Results indicated that participants in urban neighborhoods perceived themselves as more vulnerable than those in rural neighborhoods. Males were also found to have earlier sexual debuts than females. This suggests that an individual's neighborhood and sex may have an impact on his or her developing sexuality in this sample. Further research should explore other social influences on sexual development in such an understudied population.
