ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND: Age is honourable and youth is noble. Most young people become sexually active during adolescence and are more likely to have multi-partner and unprotected sex with high risk behaviour groups. Adolescent girls are sexually mature and active at younger age. They are biologically more vulnerable to HIV infection than young boys at twice the rate. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS among adolescent girls. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An evaluative research approach was used with pre-experimental, one group pre-test and post-test research design to evaluate the effectiveness of the Structured Teaching Programme. The study was conducted in selected Lowry Memorial High School, Bangalore. The sample composed of 50 adolescent girls, using non-probability purposive sampling technique. The tool used for the data collection was self administered structured questionnaire. RESULTS: The statistical paired‘t’ test implies that the mean percentage difference in the pre-test and post-test knowledge score found statistically significant at 5% level (t=51.20*, P<0.05). The overall mean post-test knowledge score of adolescent girls on transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS is 88.83%. It is apparently higher than that of pre-test knowledge score of 67.67% with enhancement of 21.16%. CONCLUSION: The study revealed that Structured Teaching Programme enhanced the knowledge of the adolescent girls on transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
