Abstract:The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is one of the leading causes of death in the world. In 2007, 2.1 million people died of HIV/AIDS (Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS 2007 [UNAIDS, 2007]). Seventy-five percent of these deaths occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa (UNAIDS, 2008). This factor retards the economic growth of this region. Indeed, this area is losing thousands of its valuable citizens on daily basis due to this syndrome. Nonetheless, research show that health campaigns intended to educate about HIV/AIDS and motivate its prevention are largely growing in Sub-Saharan Africa, especially in urban regions. Adding to this, a large amount of funding has been spent for the prevention and the treatment of the disease over the past years. Yet, Sub-Saharan Africa still remains the most affected region by this epidemic. Sixty-eight percent of people living with HIV live in this area (UNAIDS, 2008). Regardless of the fact that knowledge about HIV/Aids is rising in Sub-Saharan Africa--especially in urban areas--there are still numerous new infections. This study looks at one of the most critically affected countries in the world: Ethiopia. It studies the motivation and thought process of the Ethiopian youth living in urban areas, more particularly in Addis Ababa. It looks at how and why Ethiopians between 15 to 27 years of age decide--or not--to use condoms consistently. The Stages of Change Model is applied to this research as a mean to figure out where respondents stand (Pre-contemplation, Contemplation, Preparation, Action, Maintenance, and Relapse) regarding their condoms use, and how this could explain their behavior.
