Bridging the gap between adolescent sexuality and HIV risk: the urban Malaysian perspective

Abstract

HIV infection is a growing problem globally. Recent Malaysian epidemiological data registered some worrying trends. Firstly, it affected a relatively young age group, between the ages of 20-29 years; and secondly, there was a rising incidence among women. In a research done by Ng CJ and Kamal SF, they explored qualitatively the practice of safe sex, especially use of condoms, among late adolescents in relation to HIV risk. They conducted 16 in-depth interviews among 16 sexually active private college students (ten females, six males) in Klang Valley in 2002.
