Excerpt
But even where knowledge has been substantially increased, ‘knowing’ is not necessarily ‘doing’. Many young people do not connect knowledge and risk perception with behaviour. The vulnerable circumstances many young people experience might offer a partial explanation. Just as important is the need to understand what helps young people practise safe behaviour—the ‘protective factors’ that help adolescents form coping strategies, develop positive self-esteem and create a social support system that reduces high-risk behaviours. One study in rural Zimbabwe, for example, demonstrated that being a member of a well-run community youth group can reduce a young woman’s chance of becoming infected with HIV. A 2001 study among South African students suggested that condom use is significantly greater among adolescents who feel they can discuss sex with their parents, or adolescents who live in communities with good infrastructure. In contrast, young people living in households that recently experienced disruptive household events (illness, job loss or divorce) were less likely to use condoms. Research also confirms that higher education levels are associated with higher rates of condom use, as Figure 17 illustrates.
