Description/Abstract

The findings indicate that in parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, poverty is associated with early sexual debut (particularly among females) and that the poor are less likely than their wealthier peers to use condoms. Thus, the researchers note, it seems likely that "poverty, by influencing sexual behavior and access to services, can influence the transmission of HIV infection."
