Thoughts, inside, comments of a Catholic priest

Young people know less about condome use..

It is often said by politicians that prevention work is done in sufficient ways.. but polls suggest that there is a lot more to do again…

Therefor more teens are having unprotected sex, and they know less about contraception options like condoms.. More than 6,000 young people from 26 countries were polled on their attitudes toward sex and contraception. In the past three years, teenagers having unsafe sex with a new partner increased by 111 percent in France, 39 percent in the United States and 19 percent in Britain. Many of the study participants lacked accurate knowledge about how to use contraception and protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and HIV. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals commissioned the study, which was endorsed by 11 international organizations.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
