Final research data results from survey shown both quantitatively and qualitatively:

    • Pie Charts (majority)
    • Written Analysis
relationship ideas
Relationship Ideas
  • Condoms are used more in casual relationships, and as a relationship becomes more serious and exclusive, not using condoms is symbolic of fidelity and trust.; that the “known partner is the safe partner.”
  • “Among students who had had multiple partners in the past year, those who had had partners of both sexes were more likely to have had an STD (16%) than were students who had had only male partners (9%) or only female partners (6%).”

Recommendations for OADHE

  • More advertisements and information around campus
  • More convenient locations for condom distribution should be established
  • Preferred brands and types should be considered at a greater extent
