Connaissance, dépistage et prévention des infections sexuellement transmissibles chez les étudiants : enquête auprès de 800 étudiants d’Île-de-France

Abstract : Context: Prevalence of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) in the student population increases. Objectives: Assess knowledge, condom use, STI screening in a population of 800 French students from two Universities. Methods: Observational descriptive study on 800 French University students aged 18 to 24 years old. An online survey was sent to the students. The population was then split into two groups: one group of students in health studies, another group with the rest of the students. 743 surveys were kept for analysis. Results: Students had a good level of general knowledge on STI’s but more precise questions were difficult for the students to answer. Students in health studies had a better level of knowledge than the other students (p<0,05). However, they didn’t use condoms extensively (p>0,05). Conclusion: Our study shows that a better level of knowledge on STI’s doesn’t lead to a better prevention behavior. However, other studies show the opposite. Prevention on STI’s must use more modern communication tools such as social media and must insist on the importance of condom use, screening and dangers of unprotected sex.
