HIV testing rates low for gay male adolescents

August 28, 2015

Gay and bisexual teenage boys were unlikely to undergo HIV testing, according to research published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

“As one of the first studies to investigate the HIV testing behaviors of adolescent gay and bisexual men, findings highlight the many modifiable barriers that young men face in accessing testing services,” Gregory Phillips II, PhD, of the department of medical social sciences at Northwestern University, and colleagues wrote. “Barriers such as lack of knowledge about the closest testing site are ones that can easily be addressed through interventions and programs that target high school-age adolescents.”
