Knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to HIV and AIDS among chinese adolescents in hong kong



Knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to HIV and AIDS among chinese adolescents in hong kong



Journal of Adolescence 21(6): 657-665



The purpose of this study was to assess HIV and AIDS knowledge and attitudes, source of HIV and AIDS information, and behaviours related to HIV and AIDS among Chinese adolescents in Hong Kong. Participants included 1259 (826 females and 433 males) Chinese adolescents in Hong Kong between 12-18 years of age. Findings revealed that over 80% of the adolescents had rarely or never discussed HIV and AIDS with their family or teacher, and the primary source of HIV and AIDS information was media sources such as television and newspapers. Findings revealed HIV and AIDS misinformation among both male and female adolescents in the areas of transmission, facts, personal vulnerability and attitudes. However, participants reported engaging in little at-risk behaviour associated with HIV and AIDS. Implications for HIV and AIDS education and prevention are discussed.
