The study assessed the impact of a school-based sexual risk reduction programme on adolescent's knowledge, need for information, problem-solving and communication skills, intention to talk about and to practise safer sex.
The primary goal of working with adolescents in schools was successful, in that significant treatment effects occurred on knowledge, perception of skills and frequency of communication.
The programme was not effective in improving intentions to use condoms.
Evidence for the importance of social context aspects for safer sexual decision-making was found, since the impact of the programme differed for subjects differing in gender role attitudes.
