Abstract

This study examined male students' social representation of HIV/AIDS and how these representations influence their personal sense of risk and sexual behaviours. The study found a partial support to the social representation hypothesis that blame out-groups and African sexuality, may be sensitive to a broader construct of distancing. Personal moral attitudes about the sexual practices may be associated with safer sex. The results suggested the value of pursuing the investigation of personal moral attitudes as a potential factor in sexual behaviour.
