Adolescents and AIDS: a survey of knowledge, attitudes and beliefs about AIDS in San Francisco

Adolescents and AIDS: a survey of knowledge, attitudes and beliefs about AIDS in San Francisco

American Journal of Public Health 76(12): 1443-1445

To assess adolescents' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about AIDS in San Francisco, data were obtained from 1,326 adolescents. There was marked variability in knowledge across informational items, particularly about the precautionary measures to be taken during sexual intercourse which may reduce the risk of infection. We conclude that development and implementation of school health education programs on AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases are needed in this population.
