  1. Culturally sensitive AIDS education and perceived AIDS risk knowledge : reaching the'know-it-all'teenager.

    Article - En anglais

    Video education is the most popular and effective medium for informing the adolescent population.

    This study investigated the impact of a culturally relevant HIV/AIDS video education.

    One hundred and ninety-four African-American teenagers were assigned to either a culturally sensitive or culturally dissimilar video education intervention.

    Results indicate that both interventions were effective in increasing AIDS knowledge scores.

    An interaction effect was found between levels of perceived AIDS risk knowledge and participation in the culturally sensitive intervention (CSV).

    Only the CSV intervention was effective with adolescents who claimed to « know a lot » about AIDS (e.g., « Know-It-All » subgroup).

    Students in both conditions who were worried about getting AIDS demonstrated higher AIDS risk knowledge at post-assessment.

    This study provides further evidence of within-ethnicity diversity among African-American youth and for developing culture-and subgroup-specific HIV/AIDS education.
