AbstractThis study describes the results of an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) education program for adolescents. Questions addressed were: "Is there a relationship between predisposing factors of age, gender, education, ethnicity, and knowledge and enabling factors of self-efficacy and knowledge sharing?" and "Is there a difference in participants' predisposing factor of knowledge and enabling factors of self-efficacy and knowledge sharing before and after the AIDS education program?" A portion of the PRECEDE model was used to evaluate relationships among factors thought to be influenced by health education. No significant relationship was found between the predisposing factors of age, gender, ethnicity, and education and the enabling factors of self-efficacy and knowledge sharing. At outcome there was a significant negative correlation between knowledge and self-efficacy, but no significant relationship between knowledge and knowledge sharing. There was no statistical significant difference from baseline to outcome measurement for the variables of knowledge, self-efficacy, and knowledge sharing.
