    Article - En anglais

    To evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and sexual behaviour with respect to HIV and AIDS among Kenyan secondary school students, a questionnaire was issued to 3, 018 students of mean age 16.3 years in 11 Kenyan school.

    Questions of knowledge were answered correctly by an average of 77.1% of students.

    Areas where students' knowledge was less complete included the inability of mosquitoes to transmit the virus, the protective effect of condoms, the lack of protection from medications, the fatal and incurable nature of AIDS, and the fact that those infected with HIV may appear healthy.

    No prior sexual experience was reported by 71.3% of females and 25.2% of males.
