Abstract

The main aim of this paper was to explore people’s perceptions of the role of education on youth’s sexual behaviour. The findings from this study confirmed that people perceive that education can change the behaviour of youths in both positive and negative ways. People perceive that education has helped youths to make informed choices, adopt safe sex practice and realise the importance of using contraceptives but it has also exposed youths to live-in relationships and different types of sexual behaviour. Education has also changed the mindset and attitude of youths on sexual behavior. This study has implications for policy makers and academics.
