Why we need to take caution!!! The unheard truth about HIV/AIDS

Spread the love

We are all affected if not infected by the HIV pandemic .HIV has

been at a rise among Kenyan youth. According to the report

given by the Daily Nation on 20th September 2015, about

500,000 teenagers are infection. In addition to that, young people ranging from the age of 15-24yrs are at a higher risk of infection. What 

Could be the main reasons for this higher risk of infection among young

people?? The young people are sexually active and

ignorant of using protection .A sexually active person is one who has

indulged in sex and is at a risk of contracting STIs. There has been a

recent trend of how Kenyan Universities are affected. The HIV prevalence

rates at our Universities is increasing and expected to increase due to the

misconduct regarding sexual issues. For instance, young girls have been

lured by old men in the name of money. These ladies have trusted them so

much not to even use any form of protection. In either way, young men in

the trending name ‘Mafisi’ are chasing multiple girlfriends hence trusting

them resulting to unsafe Sex, in the course contracting the virus .Another

instance is young people in Universities indulging in taking of drugs

and alcohol hence their sexual practices being influenced by drugs and

alcohol. In the process, young people indulge in unprotected sex with different sex partners .Thirdly,young women have been noted to worry more 

about pregnancy than hiv. This has resulted tpo increase in HIV infection in

a manner that if the lady indulges in sex and is not pregnant is Okay and

less concerned about contracting the virus. Lastly, there has been a trend

in Kenyan Universities of students having revenge motives . This is evident

on how young men and women have confessed through social media

platforms on how they are ready to infect as many people as possible as

they were also infected unknowingly.
