dc.description.abstractThis study investigated sexual risk taking behaviors, perceptions of risks, condom uses, and know ledges of modes of transmitting and preventing HIV /AIDS among athletes. Data were collected through questionnaires from randomly selected athletes (M=48, F=64) from Kilimamogo Teachers College (Kenya). Data were analyzed with chi square and Students t-tests. Findings revealed no significant differences between these male and female athletes on know ledges of sexual risk taking behaviors, condom uses, perceptions of risks, and know ledges on modes of transmitting and preventing HIV/AIDS. Findings also indicated these athletes did not perceive themselves to be at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, and had inadequate know ledges about sexual risk taking behaviors, condom uses, and modes of transmitting and preventing HIV /AIDS. Recommendations included coaches providing information about HIV/ AIDS, and health care facilities be available to athletes to test for HIV.en_US
