The aim of this study was to assess the impact of an educational course on knowledge and attitude of students regarding HIV/AIDS prevention in Tabriz, Iran. The study was conducted by self-assessment technique among university students before and after an educational training programme. The findings showed that the knowledge of students increased significantly (P<0.05). The attitude to the problem also improved positively in the subjects (P<0.05). It is concluded that short-term training courses and continuous educational programmes (i.e. peer education, etc.) should be provided to young students through the course materials in the universities and schools promoting the awareness and attitude to this ever-increasing health problem.
