Inhoud: This study examined the extent and specificity of knowledge about HIV/AIDS, the most used sources of information and the usefulness of these sources among Asian-Indian adolescents who were born in the USA and whose parents emigrated from India. Although 86% knew that having unsafe sex with a person infected with HIV could transmit HIV, 47% did not know that sharing a razor with an HIV-positive person could do so, and a significant proportion believed that donating blood (27%) and taking blood tests (14%) could transmit HIV. Television was the most used source of information, but school programmes on HIV/AIDS were considered the most useful source. The results indicated that to be effective, HIV/AIDS prevention programmes must assess the gap in scientific knowledge and beliefs, and clarify misconceptions, reinforce school programmes to present clear messages about the transmission of HIV/AIDS and utilize television to reach adolescents.
