The findings suggest that youth who have high level of peer pressure, low level of HIV knowledge, high attitude towards sexuality, low level of self-esteem and high on risk taking behaviors are more vulnerable towards HIV risk. There was a significant gender difference in level of HIV risk perception, HIV knowledge, peer pressure, attitude towards alcohol and drug, attitude towards sexuality, and risk taking behaviors.
