Effectiveness of a Structured Teaching Program on Knowledge and Attitudes Toward HIV among Young Women in India.
India has the third highest number of persons living with HIV in the world. We evaluated the effectiveness of a structured teaching program on HIV-related knowledge and attitudes among 600 young women, aged 20-40 years, in India. This study employed a quasi-experimental pre-post design. Significant differences were found in the level of the participants' knowledge of (t = 78.89, p < .05) and attitudes toward (t = 64.14, p < .05) HIV after the intervention. Our findings suggest that the structured teaching program could be utilized in increasing young women's knowledge of, and improving their attitudes about, HIV.
