HIV and Sexual Behaviour Among Young South Africans: A National Survey of 15-24 Year Olds

HIV and Sexual Behaviour Among Young South Africans: A National Survey of 15-24 Year- Olds

South Africa is in the grips of a devastating HIV/AIDS epidemic in which the peak incidence occurs among 15-24 year-olds. This national survey of HIV and sexual behavior among the country’s 15-24 year-olds identifies trends in HIV infection and related determinants of infection among young people. The report also gauges the impact of loveLife, South Africa’s largest national HIV prevention initiative, on HIV and related risk behaviors. This National Youth Survey is the first of three such studies to be conducted at approximately two year intervals over the expected duration of the loveLife initiative, to track changes in HIV prevalence and sexual behavior among South African youth.
