Abstract

This study assesses the RESULTS of a two-year community-based peer education program aimed at increasing HIV/AIDS knowledge, attitudes toward condoms, and condom use behavior among taxicab and tricycle drivers in the Philippines. Pre-test, post test and follow up data were collected throughout the educational intervention program. The results of the repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicate a significant change on knowledge about HIV/AIDS from baseline to post-test, and from post-test to follow-up (F = 449.27, d.f. = 2, p< 0.001). There was also a significant change on attitudes about condom use from baseline to post-test, and from post-test to follow-up (F = 425.19, d.f .= 2, p = 0.001), and a significant effect on condom use behavior with CSWs from baseline to post-test and follow-up (F = 428.31, d.f. = 2, p = 0.001). The peer-mediated intervention was found to be an effective means of HIV/AIDS prevention among taxi and tricycle drivers in the Philippines.
