Abstract: Finding effective ways to prevent the spread ofHIV/AIDS in Africa is a concern for all. The prevalence of HIV among sexually experienced adolescents is currently very high. It has been observed that the riskbehaviour of adolescents places them at increased risk for exposure of HIV/AIDS infection. This article has therefore examined the prevalence and patterns of HIV/AIDS in Africa and Nigeria. A conceptual model toevaluate HIV/AIDS was proposed. In addition, the prevalence and patterns of risk behaviour as well as the psychosocial context in which these behaviours occur were examined Cognitive behavioural skill building interventions were also advocated. Finally, prevention and risk reduction counselling that is culturally sensitive and developmentally appropriate for the target population was suggested.
