dc.description.abstractEnglish: In this article, an exposition is provided on information collected in a survey conducted at the University of the Free State (UFS) to help provide a better understanding of risk factors for HIV infection among UFS students in comparison with the behaviour patterns of students at other universities. The focus was a univariate analysis. Stereotypes identified as a known risk factor making students at other universities more vulnerable to HIV and high-risk sexual behaviour, were also found among UFS students] 53% of the respondents believed that lower-class people were most at risk of contracting HIV. Forty percent (40%) of the students who took part in the study admitted to being sexually active. This correlates with findings in the literature study that students are a highly sexually active population. Eighteen percent (18%) of sexually active students at the UFS admitted to having had five or more sexual partners in their lifetime. Fifteen to nineteen years was identified as the watershed age range during which most participants first had sexual intercourse. The majority of students (76%), stated that the existence of HIV had influenced their sexual interaction with other people. In an interesting revelation, a general sexual culture was identified among UFS students, rather than culturally-based sexual practices.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: In hierdie artikel is 'n uiteensetting gegee van inligting wat tydens 'n opna~e aan die Universiteit van die Vrystaat (UV) bekom is, en wat poog om 'n beter begrip te verskaf vanrisikofaktore vir MIVinfektering onder UV -studente. Stereotipering, wat 'n bekende risikofaktor is en die kwesbaarheid van studente ten opsigte van MIV en seksuele gedrag wat 'n hoë risiko inhou aan ander universiteite verhoog, is bok onder UV-studente gevind. Daar is gevind dat 53% van die respondente glo dat mense van die:laer klasse die grootste risiko dra vir MIV-infektering. Veertig persent (40% ) van deelnemende studente het erken dat hulle seksueel aktief is, wat ooreenstem met bevindinge aan ander universiteite dat studente' n hoogs seksuele populasie is. Agtien persent (18%) van UV-studente het erken dat hulle reeds vyf of meer seksuele maats in hul leeftyd gehad het. Die meeste deelnemende studente was tussen die ouderdom van vyftien en negentien jaar vir die eerste keer seksueel aktief. Die meerderheid (76% ) van UV-studente het erken dat die bestaan van MIiv wel hulle seksuele, interaksie met ander mense beïnvloed het. 'n Interessante bevinding was die neiging tot'n algemene seksuele kultuur onder studente aan die UV, eerder as kultuurgebaseerde s~ksuele praktyke.af
