Attitudes about AIDS education and condom availability among parents of high school students in New York City : A focus group approach.
This paper describes parents'views of the New York City Public High School's AIDS Education and Condom Availability Program.
It presents findings from 12 focus groups with 81 parents of students at six representative high schools.
Focus groups were conducted as part of an independent, comprehensive 3-year evaluation of the program, consisting of both qualitative and quantitative components.
Participants were mostly supportive of the program, citing intense concern about AIDS among adolescents, fear that teenagers do not adequately perceive themselves as being vulnerable, and personal experiences with infected relatives and friends.
Implications of these findings for program development are discussed and recommendations for social policy changes are presented.
