ABSTRACT

Present study on adolescents regarding HIV/AIDS knowledge and the implication for health promotion programs was conducted in Ghaziabad City. HIV/AIDS is most popular disease and increasing day by day. HIV/AIDS knowledge is limited among the general population in India, lack of knowledge among adolescents might be more alarming than lack of knowledge in the general population because one would expect that adolescents, as future leaders of the society and as educated individuals would be the most knowledgeable about HIV/AIDS. For the presents study, 50 boys and 50 girls were selected randomly and were interviewed by self-constructed questionnaire. Data was analyzed by percentile technique and results indicate that both boys and girls have knowledge about HIV/AIDS but are not much aware about modes of transmission, symptoms, treatment and preventive measure. The data underscore the urgent need for HIV/AIDS related health promotion and prevention efforts targeting adolescents.
