  • Product Description

Despite the high awareness of HIV infection, risky sexual behaviours are still prevalent among the Kenyan youth. It is arguable that the strategies in place have not been very effective in changing sexual behaviours. In this book, the author maintains that behaviour change remains a foreseeable solution to HIV/AIDS infection and any constraining factors need to be explained through research. Using a baseline survey, Mr. Murgor explores factors that hinder change in youth sexual behavior in Kenya. In this study, the following pertinent areas are discussed with regard to the youth and their susceptibility to HIV/AIDS infection: sexual activity, HIV infection, attitude towards condom use and self efficacy. Consequently, the author employs the Health Belief Model (HBM). HBM proposes that in order for a person to change their behaviours, they must first believe they are susceptible to a certain condition and that the severity of that condition is serious. This book is significant for professionals in medical and behavioural sciences, organizations involved in HIV prevention, Policy makers in education and health sectors, the youth and all the stakeholders in HIV/AIDS management.
