Abstract

GARCIA HERNANDEZ, Tania; RODRIGUEZ FERRA, Reinaldo  and  CASTANO HERNANDEZ, Santos. Efectividad de las técnicas participativas en los conocimientos sobre el sida en adolescentes. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.5, pp.474-479. ISSN 0864-2125.

An intervention study on the degree of knowledge of the adolescents about AIDS and the effectiveness of the participative techniques in their knowledge was conducted. A group of 40 9th-grade students from "Esteban Borrero Hechevarría" Secondary Basic School corresponding to "Tula Aguilera" health area, in the city of Camagüey, was selected to take part in this study from September 1, 1996, to February 28, 1997. On initiating the research and having the first cut-off, 80% of the students had fair or bad evaluations in relation to the knowledge of AIDS. When the classes finished, they were evaluated again and the results changed, since 100 % of them were positive. To conclude, an answer is given to the hypothesis that participative techniques are a tool the family physician may use to explain to the adolescents essential aspects they should know about this disease
