The vast majority of adults (including a few health providers) and about half the youths (including some peer educators) had serious misgivings about condoms, even though the latter had been participating in the Y4Y program which provided accurate condom information.
We consider these views "transitional" because they represent a more liberal attitude than historically, and may be attributable to AIDS educational efforts in Kenya and the Y4Y program, which several participants mentioned.
More than half of peer educators felt that youths should not be allowed access to condoms, despite being trained in the Y4Y curriculum which spelled out youths' rights to condoms and the effectiveness of proper condom use.
Furthermore, the facilitator of the focus groups was the local Y4Y manager, which may have biased some participants to speak more favorably about youth condom use.
