Évaluation des connaissances des jeunes de 18 à 25 ans concernant l’infection par le VIH-Sida et impact sur leur dépistage : étude observationnelle auprès de 683 étudiants des Hauts-de-Seine

Abstract : Context: Young people seem to make commonplace of the HIV-AIDS with a decline level of knowledge and a low screening activity. Backgrounds: Assess knowledge of 18-25 years old students on HIV-AIDS and highlight a link with their screening activity. Define the prospects for improving our prevention strategies. Methods: Observational study with 683 students from 18 to 25 years enrolled in the Hautsde- Seine in various institutions (BTS, faculty, engineering school and professional high school). Data collection was done by a questionnaire or-face or by Internet. The evaluation of the link between the level of knowledge and screening activity was conducted through multivariate logistic regression. Results: There is a strong link between the youth knowledge level on HIV-AIDS and screening activity. The higher the score of knowledge increases, the likelihood of achieving a screening HIV test increases even adjusted for sex, age or being a couple, potential confounding factors (OR (95%IC): 1,13 [1,02 to 1,25]; p <0,024). 67% of students would like more information on HIV-AIDS. 42% of those who never approached the subject with their doctor would like to speak about it with him. Conclusion: The higher the level of knowledge of HIV and AIDS is, the more likely it is to perform screening. Young people want more information on this subject. Improved knowledge, in addition to help identify and limit risk-taking, could make aware the young to voluntary screening.
