Abstract

The incidence of HIV in PR is nearly twice the incidence rate of the United States. Considering emerging biomedical tools for HIV prevention (i.e. PrEP) it is imperative to understand access to and the experience in primary care among Spanish-speaking GBMSM in PR. A secondary analysis was conducted using a dataset collected in 2017 from an on-line sample of 256 sexually active GBMSM in PR. Descriptive and inferential analyses were conducted to determine correlates for HIV testing.
