Sexual and Reproductive Health Care for Latino Men in Rural Oregon: Providers’ Experiences and Perceptions

A session at Priester National Health Extension Conference

Tuesday 16th April, 2013

11:20am to 11:50am (PST)

Latinos are disproportionately affected by unintended pregnancy and HIV/STIs. Latino migrants in rural Oregon communities tend to be young men at increased risk for sexual health problems. To improve the delivery of sexual and reproductive health services (SRHS) to this population, we conducted interviews with 29 providers who work in rural Oregon to explore what factors influence the use of SRHS by Latino men. Factors identified included men's lack of accurate knowledge, denial of health problems, clinics' lack of resources, need for additional outreach services, and shortage of male and Spanish-speaking providers. Providers recommended innovative strategies for increasing capacity.
