Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Att undersöka gymnasieungdomars kunskaper om HPV och klamydia samt attityder till att använda kondom före och efter en riktad intervention.

Metod: En kvasiexperimentell studie. Fyra klasser från två olika gymnasieskolor valdes att ingå i studien. Eleverna besvarade en enkät angående deras kunskaper om sexuellt överförbara infektioner (STI) och attityder till kondomanvändande före och efter interventionen. 

Resultat: Deltagarna hade efter interventionen en signifikant ökad kunskap om vilket det bästa skyddet är mot klamydia. Före interventionen visste inte någon av eleverna vilken den vanligaste sexuellt överförbara infektionen är, efter interventionen visste nästan hälften av eleverna det. Sannolikheten att eleverna skulle använda kondom vid samlag med en partner om de själva eller deras partner hade p-piller var signifikant större efter interventionen. Elevernas attityder till att använda kondom med en ny partner var lika positiva före och efter interventionen. 

Slutsats: Gymnasieungdomarnas kunskaper om HPV och klamydia var låga före interventionen. Studien visar att en intervention kan ge ökade kunskaper om infektionerna och till viss del förändrade attityder till kondomanvändande. 

Abstract [en]

Aim: To investigate secondary school students knowledge about HPV and chlamydia, and attitudes toward use of condom before and after an intervention.

Methods: A quasi-experimental study in the form of an intervention. Four classes from two different secondary schools were selected to be included in the study. The students answered a questionnaire regarding their knowledge of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and attitudes toward condom use before and after the intervention.

Results: The participants had after the intervention significantly increased knowledge about what the best protection is against chlamydia. Before the intervention, none of the students had knowledge about the most common sexually transmitted infection. After the intervention the knowledge had increased to almost half of the students. The probability that the students would use condom during intercourse with a new partner if they or their partner had the pill was significantly higher after the intervention. The students’ attitudes toward using condoms with a new partner were equally positive before and after the intervention. 

Conclusion: The secondary school students’ knowledge of HPV and chlamydia were low before the intervention. The study shows that an intervention can provide and increase knowledge of STI and some changing attitudes to condom use.
