Abstract:

Sexually transmitted infections (STI) are a growing problem in the United States and 70% of newly reported HIV cases are among African American adolescents. Interventions are needed to increase knowledge of sexual health and reduce risky sexual behavior among African American adolescents. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a high school sexual health intervention, the Each One Teach One Study (EOTO), on adolescent sexual behavior and HIV/STI knowledge. Sexual behavior and knowledge were assessed based on self-report baseline and post intervention surveys of 60 high school students. A two sample t-test was conducted to determine change in knowledge scores; while a logistic regression analysis determined change in condom use. The results indicate that the EOTO study significantly increased knowledge and condom use among students in the intervention group. This study provides preliminary data that a single session may be effective in reducing risky sexual behavior.
