Aids related knowledge attitudes behaviors and intentions among texas usa college students



Aids related knowledge attitudes behaviors and intentions among texas usa college students



Health Education Research 3(1): 67-74



A survey was mailed to 2000 randomly selected students at four campuses in a southern midwestern state. The survey examined college students' knowledge, attitudes and beliefs regarding AIDS, their sexual activity, safer sex practices, prosocial actions they would be willing to take and preferred channels of communication for additional information about AIDS and AIDS Related Complex (ARC). The results generally indicated that students were well informed about the common methods of transmission but showed a lack of correct information about issues such as transmission by mosquitoes and CPR administration. Condom use, knowledge of antibody tests and sexual practices were also examined. Students were generally conservative in their beliefs, attitudes and behavior, and expressed an interest in learning more about AIDS and ARC. Various channels of communication were examined and recommendations were made about dissemination of information through these media.
