HIV/AIDS and teenagers

Hannah Dillow

What are specific dangers for this population?

They are not really educated about the dangers of HIV. They also might not know how its spread and how to prevent it. Some people don't take HIV and AIDS as serious as it should be taken.

How has the risk for this population changed over the years?

Teenagers have become more promiscuous in these past couple of years. Also the use of condoms has been going down.

What behaviors put this population at risk?

Promiscuity is a big problem with this generation. Kids are performing sexual activities without any protection, or knowledge of the consequences.

What could members of this population do to avoid HIV

Teens can become more educated about HIV/AIDS by reading pan flits, talking to a doctor or reading about it online. Also teenagers should always wear condoms with any sexual activity.
