Abstract

Increased incidence of sexually transmitted diseases, especially HIV/AIDS, and unintended pregnancies among adolescents call for immediate measures that should educate adolescents and reduce risk from such outcomes. This article discusses school-based condom availability programs as one means to facilitate access to condoms and provide additional counseling for prevention of undesired consequences of adolescent sexual behaviors.
