Kibabii University, being a study place presents a scenario of competing tasks (academic and social) for students. Being young and energetic, students are naturally impatient, have sexual and reproductive health concerns, they need quick and fast services. To try and meet these needs the University AIDS Control Unit (ACU) located within the Academic Block (ABB 010), provides a sort of one-stop shop service provision center, which acts as a drop-in-center for students to and from lecture halls. Here, students can freely access information and counseling services by the HIV and AIDS Peer Educators and one specific HIV/ AIDS Counselor.
