Kenya: Abstinence Campaign Enters Pop Culture, Reaches Youth
------------------------------------------------------------


Population Services International (PSI)/Kenya's "Nimechill"
youth abstinence campaign, the first of its kind in the country,
has became so popular that the phrase "chilling" has been incor-
porated into the language and culture. Reports also show that
almost half of youth surveyed had been exposed to the campaign,
and those exposed to the campaign's empowering messages were
more likely to believe in their own ability to abstain than
those who did not see the campaign.
