A Quantitative Study of the Sexual Health Barriers for Young Black Women: Research Proposal

Kyiah L. Bell
Dr. Nancy Daley-Moore, Faculty Mentor

Sexual education research has revealed that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are disproportionately affected by gender, age and ethnicity. Black women between the ages 15 to 30 are the most vulnerable group for STIs. Previous research suggests that there are many barriers such as behavioral, cultural, socioeconomic, relational and biological factors that contribute to the high STI rate of young black women. This study will use quantitative surveys with black women in and outside of college in Saint Louis and Kirksville areas in Missouri. The quantitative measures performed in this study will help to assess what barriers are the most detrimental in causing high STI rates in young black women. Most importantly these results will help create  interventions that will produce significant results in decreasing the health disparity among young black women.
