There were 572 Iowans not living with HIV or who were unaware of their HIV statuses who completed the Prevention Needs Assessment (PNA) survey. The PNA collected information about participants’ demographics, perceived impacts of racism, HIV- testing history, pre and post-exposure prophylaxis awareness and use, STD and HCV testing and treatment, HIV risk behaviors, and sexual practices. For many demographic questions, results were compared to the United States Census Data estimates (www.census.gov). The majority of survey participants were recruited by organizations that provide testing, prevention, and/or harm reduction services. This recruitment method may impact the results as individuals who have an increased awareness of HIV and STD prevention services may be overrepresented.
