dc.description.abstract The present thesis explores the knowledge of STIs including HIV / AIDS and its contraction and prevention among students of selected private and public universities in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The study is based on a survey of 320 students. Result suggests that 98% students heard about AIDS, among them 94% students mentioned about contraction and prevention of AIDS. Seventy five percent of students reported hearing about STIs, among them 64% mentioned at least one possible cause of STIs, 42% mentioned at least one sign and symptom of STIs, 24% mentioned at least one complication of STIs, but few students knew STIs testing place in town. Most students reported that STIs is curable, and one third reported that STIs is preventable. Sixty nine percent of male and only 17% female students reported to have STIs symptom present among them during last one year. However, female students mentioned more frequently to have been seeking advice from health professionals such as doctor, nurse in a clinic or hospital (35%) followed by friends and relatives (30%) and male students sought advice from friends and family (25%) followed by health professionals such as doctor, nurse in a clinic or hospital (13%). The findings of the study suggest that university students have knowledge on AIDS and STIs, but knowledge on its contraction and prevention is comparatively poor. en_US
