Authors: Carla Borges, César Fonseca
Issue Date: 1-May-2018
Abstract: HIV infection continues to be a priority area within the scope of Public Health. Aim: To systematize the risk behaviors related with HIV infection among young people aged 15-24, to identify preventive measures in order to decrease virus transmission, contributing for a more sustained and effective nursing practice. Method: A literature review was done by researching on EBSCO (CINAHL and MEDLINE) from March to May 2018, using PICO methodology. 10 articles were analyzed. Results: Risky behaviors and factors were documented such as: early age at sexual debut, peer pressure, fear of abuse, multiple partners and the characteristics of sexual contacts, intercourse without condom, intravenous drug use and to be carrier of other Sexually Transmitted Infections. Conclusions: In order to reduce HIV infection, interventions and programs which modify the risky sexual behavior should be applied. Implications for professional practice: the knowledge of sexual risk behaviors, as well as preventive programs, is essential on several nursing practice scenarios, specifically among young people, boosting the adherence to health promoting behaviors.
