Summary
"The Sexual construction of Latino youth provides students and HIV specialists with shocking information on Latin American countries, such as Honduras, which contains more than fifty percent of the AIDS cases in Central America, 20% of whom are fifteen to twenty-four years old. Through your knowledge of the situation, you can work to prevent tragedy among young people in Latin America, who are among the least informed group regarding HIV prevention and the most likely to engage in practices that place them at high risk of contracting HIV"--Jacket
