Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Despite increasing HIV/AIDS morbidity and mortality, focus on young heterosexual African American men is limited. Nontraditional community-based prevention programs may be most effective for this demographic. Barbershops are one potential venue; however, barbers' and barbershop owners' views on the concept are less known. This paper describes attitudes and beliefs among barbers and barbershop owners regarding delivering a barber-facilitated, skills-based HIV risk-reduction intervention to their clientele. Participants believed that young heterosexual African American men were at significant risk for HIV and highly regarded the intervention model. This novel work contributes a voice to the literature that is infrequently heard.
