Close to 70% of Angola’s population is under the age of 24 years. Angola’s 2010 Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices survey among people aged 15-24 years revealed that 43% of young people have had sex by the age of 15, and only 51% of male and 38% of female youth know that condom use is a method for HIV prevention.
