    Background

    Limited research has targeted HIV risk among heterosexual African-American men in rural southeastern US.

    Methods

    A cross-sectional survey was administered to 538 men to assess HIV knowledge, attitudes toward HIV testing and sexual risk behavior.

    Results

    Fifty-one percent reported consistent condom use in past three months. Monogamous men reported more consistent condom use (t =3.47, df =536, p<.001). In concurrent partnerships condom use was inversely related to age (AOR=.98, 95% CI=.95-.998, p=.03) and increased by number of female partners (AOR=1.49, 95% CI=1.26-1.76, p <.001).

    Conclusions

    African American HIV prevention outreach should include focus on concurrent partnering in rural settings.
