This study assessed the ability and preparedness of staff at family planning clinics in Durban to assist in AIDS prevention by promoting condom use among teenagers.
Staff at 12 randomly selected clinics were interviewed to assess their attitudes towards teenagers seeking condoms, the information imparted on AIDS and condom use, contraints faced in delivering services, and their perceived role in controlling the spread of AIDS.
Despite their awareness of AIDS, those interviewed perceived their role to be that of promoting contraception.
Condoms were perceived as a poor choice of contraceptive and their use was discouraged.
