Male Sexual Partners of Adolescent Girls and Young Women in Haiti: Sexual Risk Behavior, HIV Service Use and Partner Violence Abstract:

This study sought to provide information from the perspective of male sexual partners of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in Haiti, to inform HIV programming there for men. It examined sexual risk behavior, use of HIV testing and treatment services, and the dynamics of sexual relationships, including intimate partner violence. MEASURE Evaluation— funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief—conducted the study in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP), at USAID’s request and as one component of PEPFAR’s DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) project. Understanding factors that contribute to HIV risk and service use among male sexual partners of AGYW supports USAID’s goal of controlling the epidemic in Haiti and globally.

A cross-sectional social and behavioral survey was administered to 500 male partners of AGYW1 in the Delmas area of Port-au-Prince and to 300 male partners in St. Marc in February–March 2019. Respondents were recruited using respondent-driven sampling (RDS). Results were analyzed using frequency and bivariate calculations that were adjusted using population sampling weights constructed in RDS Analyst.
