Adolescence is a critical stage in human life. Adolescents’ perception of the impact of condom use on sexual behaviour has been studied in developed countries. However, not much is known about this phenomenon in Ghana. The study investigates the perception of adolescents regarding the impact of condom use on sexual behaviours. Simple random and stratified sampling techniques were employed to select the study respondents. The data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that adolescents’ knowledge level about condom use was above average (>2.50). Again, the adolescents’ knowledge level about condom use predicted their sexual behaviours (β = 0.159, p=0.000). It is concluded that adolescents possess adequate knowledge about condom use. It is recommended that more stakeholders should be involved in the provision of knowledge on condom use among adolescents in Ghana.
Key words: Adolescents, adolescence, perception, knowledge level, condom use, sexual behaviours, Ghana.
