ABSTRACT
This is a descriptive study that explores how 702 students from selected secondary schools and a university represent the origin and spread of HIV/AIDS, risks associated with HIV/AIDS, self efficacy and sexual behaviours. The study revealed that where participants attribute the cause and spread of HIV/AIDS to the other, they are more likely to have low risk perception, low self efficacy and unsafe sexual behaviours when the sample is sexually active. The findings have implication for policy making and HIV/AIDS prevention programmes.
