Social Cultural Beliefs and Practices Inhibiting Behaviour Change among Bakhayo Men in the Era of HIV and AIDS: A Case of Nambale Division Busia County

Mudy J. Peter, Samuel Juma

This term paper is dedicated to exploring number of cultural discourses of male sexuality amongst Bakhayo community and establishing culture as a major determinant of health relevant behaviour, given that HIV and AIDS affects people socially, economically and culturally. The paper contends that sex and sexuality has to be scrutinized and understood from a sociological viewpoint because sex in itself has a social function. The study revealed the importance of taking into account cultural sexual realities when designing prevention strategies for HIV and AIDS. Furthermore the study threw light on the futility of the recent national HIV and AIDS prevention strategy of Abstain, Be faithful, and use a Condom (ABC). An effective and workable alternative to the current national ABC approach is to engage people profoundly in exploring their present-day cultural conditions and developing working approaches themselves.
