HIV-Related Sexual Risk Behaviours among Late-adolescent Jamaican Girls with Older Male Partners

Objective: To describe HIV-related sexual risk behaviours among late-adolescent Jamaican girls and examine whether having an age-discordant male sexual partner (≥ 2 years older) was associated with a decrease in condom use at last coitus.
