ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which evaluated the impact of sex and HIV education programs on youth in developed and developing countries. The authors reviewed evaluation studies of curriculum-based sex and HIV education programs for adolescents or young adults aged 9-24 published after 1990. The results of the evaluation indicate that intervention programs were far more likely to have a positive impact on behavior than a negative impact. The authors conclude that replications are also effective if all the elements from the original intervention are included and the intervention is conducted in a similar setting.
