  1. Finding health and AIDS information in the mass media : An exploratory study among Chinese college students.

    Article - En anglais

    Western health officials believe the incidence of HIV infection in the People's Republic of China is much higher than has been reported, but knowledge about the disease remains low.

    This paper describes a preliminary study of Chinese college students'AIDS knowledge and beliefs and of the acceptability of mass media for AIDS education.

    Focus group interviews of 73 Xiamen University students showed that the students used radio more consistently than any other media and viewed magazines as the best media source of health information.

    However, they expressed a general distrust of the health information media offer.

    They possessed quite a bit of accurate information about AIDS but also harbored many inaccurate beliefs.

    Most felt that their personal risk from AIDS was very low because they felt distanced-either geographically or morally-from those at risk.

    Disturbing numbers felt that fate, not individual behavior, determines whether or not a person contracts HIV.

    The paper discusses the study's implications for future research.
