A programme of surveys was undertaken in collaboration with District Health Authorities to assess the AIDS awareness and sexual behaviour of young people, in order to help the development and implementation of HIV/AIDS risk-reduction strategies.
Given that the patterns of findings were strongly replicated in the different districts, the data is presented in terms of a combined data set comprising 2955 respondents aged 16-24.
The surveys indicate fairly reasonable levels of knowledge about HIV/AIDS but very low personally perceived vulnerability to infection.
The sexual culture is one of fairly early ages of first intercourse, moderate levels of partner change and low (one third) levels of condom use.
