Abstract

Die jeug is besonder kwesbaar as gevolg van riskante gedrag wat groot gesondheidsprobleme soos seksuele gedrag veroorsaak wat tot seksueel oordraagbare siektes en VIGS mag lei. Hierdie studie is gedoen om die faktore wat 'n impak het op die gebruik van voorbehoedmiddels en dienste hiervoor vir jeugdiges in Noord-Tshwane te identifiseer en te beskryf. Twee fokusgroeponderhoude is met die jeugdiges gevoer wat die geselekteerde gesondheidsentra besoek het vir voorbehoedmiddels en diegene wat 'n swangerskap beeïndig het. Die onderhoude is op audioband geneem, veldnotas gemaak en verbatim getranskribeer. Die bevindinge van die getranskribeerde fokusgroeponderhoude het aangetoon dat faktore 'n groot rol speel wanneer van voorbehoedmiddels en 'n aantal dienste vir voorbehoedmiddels nie gebruik word nie.

Young people are vulnerable to risky behaviors that cause major health problems such as sexual behaviour resulting in early, unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).This study intends to identify and describe factors impacting on the utilisation of contraceptives and contraceptive services among youth in Northern Tshwane. A purposive sampling method was used to select participants who met the set criteria. Two focus group interviews were held with youth who visited the selected health care centres for contraceptives and those who had terminated a pregnancy. The interviews were tape recorded, field notes were made during interviews and these were transcribed verbatim. The findings revealed that a number of factors play a major role in non-utilisation of contraceptives and contraceptive services.
