Boys' Talk: Young Men and HIV

A series of five radio features from around the world that give young men the chance to talk freely about their attitudes to sex, drugs and girls as they grow up during the AIDS epidemic.

Teenage boys and young men aren’t often thought of as a vulnerable part of society. In fact, they’re often portrayed as a danger – either to themselves or to society. Statistics back this up – young men are the most likely social group to commit rape and be involved in violence, the most likely to inject drugs, and the most likely to indulge in risky sexual behaviour. And it’s because young men take risks that they are, to a large extent, driving the HIV-AIDS epidemic. Many campaigners now believe that in order to turn the epidemic around, we need to talk to young men to understand why they continue to take risks despite knowing about HIV/AIDS.
