dc.description.abstract The results discussed in this report are part of a larger study conducted among the students of the University of Botswana regarding their knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to HIV/AIDS. The study triangulated survey methods and focus group discussions. Five main areas were investigated: knowledge and personal experiences of HIV/AIDS, sexual behavior and practices, perceptions about risky sexual behavior on campus, and factors that influence the spread of HIV. This article reports high levels of risky behaviors such as alcohol and drug abuse; unprotected sex; frequent change of sexual partners; sex for financial gain, for prestige, for good grades, to relieve stress, and because of peer pressure; and casual sex as part of socializing. en_US
