Protection – Kenya

Protection brings alive tensions, contradictions and realities surrounding condom use for men in these times of HIV. This film offers vivid glimpses into attitudes and emotions of men of different backgrounds and ages in Kenya, in rural and urban contexts, and the challenges and realities of sexual protection that men are facing. It provides moving insights into perceptions and debates about condoms that resonate across Africa and often place men and boys at risk either of contradicting HIV or of being ill-prepared to manage well their HIV positive status. As it explores different ways of thinking and arguing about condom use, Protection invites you to think again about the importance of sexual protection for boys and men in sub-Saharan African countries, where lives of millions of men, women and children are affected by HIV and AIDS.
