The main objective of HIV/AIDS education is to necessitate HIV prevention among the youth through behaviour development and or modification. This implies HIV/AIDS Education is supposed to be a medium of creating awareness and most importantly promote practices and skills to enable HIV prevention. The programme therefore should encourage interventions that have the potential to promote behaviour that could enhance HIV/AIDS prevention and provide a supportive environment with collective decision making. The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of HIV/AIDS education in promoting interventions for HIV/AIDS prevention among the youth in secondary schools. This study focused on four interventions:abstinence and condom use promotion to reduce risky sexual exposures; and counseling promotion and youth involvement to enable a supportive environment. The study could contribute to knowledge and practice on how the HIV/AIDS education programme can better meet the needs of the youth in schools.
