The research will investigate the knowledge, thinking and methods of primary school learners towards HIV/AIDS. Acquired defense deficiency symptoms or bought immunodeficiency symptoms (AIDS) is a disease in the human disease fighting capability caused by the human immunodeficiency computer virus (HIV). This problem progressively minimizes the effectiveness of the immune system and leaves individuals vunerable to opportunistic infections and tumors. HIV is definitely transmitted through direct contact of a mucous membrane or maybe the bloodstream which has a bodily smooth containing HIV, such as blood vessels, semen, penile fluid, pre-seminal fluid, and breast dairy. AIDS has become a pandemic. In 2007, it was approximated that thirty-three. 2В million persons lived together with the disease globally, and that HELPS killed nearly 2 . 1В million people, including 330, 1000 children. Over three-quarters of these deaths occurred in sub-Saharan The african continent, retarding economic growth and destroying human capital. Even though treatments to get AIDS and HIV can slow the course of the disease, there is presently no shot or treatment. Antiretroviral treatment reduces both the mortality and the morbidity of HIV infection, but these prescription drugs are expensive and routine usage of antiretroviral medication is not available in all of the countries. Because of the difficulty in dealing with HIV infection, preventing infection is a important aim in controlling the HELPS pandemic, with health agencies promoting safe sex and needle-exchange programs in tries to sluggish the propagate of the disease. There is no doubt the HIV/AIDS pandemic holds the most serious menace in recent memory to Southern African culture. With a count of a few. 3вЂ“5. six million attacked people by the end of the year 2003, South Africa provides the largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in the world (Department of Well being, 2004; UNAIDS, 2004).

The substantial rates of sexually sent infections and teenage pregnancies clearly show that a signiп¬Ѓcant percentage of adolescents are experiencing unprotected sexual despite familiarity with sexual concerns (Van Dyk, 1999: 138).
Young people include misconceptions about sexuality. These types of may come from possibly the environment or from videos and music in which there are explicit sex scenes along with dialect that explains to them that love means sex (Strydom, 2002: 86).
There are young people who feel that the birth control method pill may protect them against AIDS in not much different from the way as it inhibits pregnancy (Van Dyk, 1999: 138).
There are numerous young people who are from the opinion it is not really sex when you use a condom (Steyn, 2000: 2).
Concern regarding AIDS seems to be waning because infected folks are living much longer as a result of success in treating HIV (Rutledge ain al., 2001: 292).
