HIV/AIDS Teaching Behaviors of Educators in Haiti
Martel, Lise D.; Mueller, Charles W.
Journal of HIV/AIDS Prevention in Children & Youth, v7 n2 p105-118 2006
This study examined the predictive power of knowledge, attitudes, support for AIDS education, teaching comfort, perceived behavioral control, religious (Vodoun and Christian) beliefs, and subjective norms on Haitian educators' teaching of HIV/AIDS to their students. Two hundred and fourteen teachers from Jeremie and surrounding areas in Haiti completed an anonymous questionnaire that included demographic questions, open-ended questions and eight scales. Four variables (subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, religious beliefs, and participant gender) were found to be significant predictors of HIV/AIDS teaching behavior. A binary logistic regression model was developed and correctly categorized 73% of those who did and did not teach about HIV to their students. Responses to open-ended questions supported and extended findings from the quantitative analyses. (Contains 3 tables.)
