English Objectives: This study explores the intimate relationship context in which subSaharan young immigrants (18-25) adopt HIV sexual risk behaviors.
Methods: Qualitative data from 37 in-depth semistructured interviews and 2
focus groups were analyzed through an inductive approach and constant
comparative analyses.
Results: HIV sexual risk behaviors occurred in four types of intimate
relationships. However, reasons for taking risks varied by relationship type and
also depended on material resources, as well as interactional, cultural, and social
dimensions related to sexual socialization and migration.
Conclusions: Findings support the importance of considering the intimate
relationship context to understand how HIV sexual risk behaviors occur.
