    The number of Ugandan boys and girls keeping their virginity is steadily going up, according to the results of a newly released survey.

    The Uganda AIDS Indicator Survey 2011 preliminary report, released on Friday, indicates that more than two thirds of the boys and over half of the girls aged 15-19 have never had sexual intercourse.

    Among boys in this age bracket the percentage of virgins rose from 52% in 1995 to 61% in 2000. It then declined slightly to 58% in 2005 before increasing significantly to 66% in 2011.

    Among the girls, the percentage of virgins in this age group rose from 38% in 1995 to 48% in 2000 and 54% in 2005. It has since remained steady at around 54%.

    The survey was conducted by the Ministry of Health, Uganda Bureau of Statistics with the support of several American and European development organisations as well as the World Health Orgnanisation (WHO).

    The organisations involved included the US-based ICF International, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) and the British Department for International Development.

    Dr. Alex Opio, assistant commissioner for national disease control, explained that the rise in virginity was a result of concerted anti-AIDs campaign by various stakeholders. He, however, said they would be happier with 100% virginity in that age bracket.

    “Our teaching is that there should be no sex before marriage. This (rise in virginity) means our messages are working. Next time we want to see it rising to 70%. The ultimate figure should be 100%.”

    He explained that there are fewer female than male virgins because of the social problems that girls face. They drop out of school earlier and are often not empowered to resist the numerous forceful advances from men. “That is why we are advocating for gender empowerment,” he said.

    In the survey, a total of 9,588 people were interviewed countrywide and subsequently tested for HIV. Of this number, 2,089 were in the 15-19 age bracket. The sampling was scientifically done to ensure it is nationally representative.

    Wa-Uganda ninawafahamu vzr na hasa tabia zao na hata siku chache zilizopita nilikuwa huko. Sina uhakika sana na hiyo report, ila kama ni kweli na ndiyo wamebadilika hivi kwa muda mfupi, basi nawapa big up saaana.

    Ibaki sasa changamoto kwa sisi watanzania, sijui National Bureau of Statistics (wazee wa takwimu) wana data gani kuhusu Tanzania na Vijana wa umri huo? Maana surveys na data nyingi tulizonazo hapo ofcn (maana na sisi pia tunafanya tafiti) tulizopata kwenye mikoa kadhaa zinaonyesha vijana huanza hiyo michezo kabla ya kufikia darasa la saba!!!
    Kazi ni kwetuuuuu!

    Hii report imenitatiza sana, labda uchunguzi ulifanyika vijijini sana au maeneo ambayo imani ya kidini imewakaa sana na hivyo na kuja na hizi challenging figures!
