Correlation of family acceptance and peer support group toward sexual behavior risk on MSM with HIV/AIDS in Medan, Indonesia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objectives: This research aims to determine the relationship of family acceptance and peer group support toward sexual behavior risk and the sociodemographic factors that influence it. Method: The study uses cross-sectional design, which involves 180 MSM (men who have sex with men) with HIV/AIDS as respondents, using a consecutive sampling technique. Results: The results show that most respondents have high family acceptance (52.8%) and good peer support (56.1%); 56.7% of respondents have high sexual behavior risk. The chi-squared test determined a significant relationship between family acceptance and peer support with sexual behavior risk (p < 0.001 and p < 0.001; α = 0.05). Conclusion: Nursing interventions that encourage family members to always accept the condition of patients-specifically MSM-with HIV/AIDS are necessary to prevent sexual behavior risk.
