Influence of Selected Socio-Demographic Factors on the Response of College Students towards VCT Services: A Case of Selected Middle Level Colleges in Nairobi Province, Kenya

Macharia Joyce Mghoi, Chege Moses Gichuho

VCT facilities were integrated into the public health system in 2001. The facilities have not however been fully utilized especially by the youth. Based on this realization the study seeks to determine the influence of socio-demographic factors on the response of college students towards VCT services. Purposive sampling was used to select three colleges to be used in the study out of nine major colleges. This being a descriptive research, a stratified random sampling design was appropriate. More female students were aware of the VCT services 82.6% as opposed to 68.2% male while less than half of the population 45.7% were aware of the location of this facility. The study concludes that the percentage of college students who are tested for HIV is relatively low considering the effort that has been made by the government, non governmental organizations and other stakeholders in creating awareness on HIV/AIDS campaigns. One of the recommendations by the authors is that college students should be helped to deal with stigmatisation, fear and discriminations.
