Synopsis: 
A third of Jamaicans report sexual practices that increase their risk of HIV infection. High-risk sexual behaviour was more common among men and younger persons, but was not infrequent among older persons. Being married, active religious practice and weekly attendance at religious meetings were associated with lower odds of high risk sexual behaviour.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To estimate the prevalence of high-risk sexual behaviours among Jamaican adults and evaluate associations with sociodemographic and religious factors.
