Predictors and Reproductive Health Implications of Knowledge of HIV/AIDS among Female Out-of-School Adolescents in Iwaya Community, Lagos State

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) remains a major threat to the reproductive wellbeing of millions of young people in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet, some of the intervention programmes aimed at increasing knowledge about HIV fail to reach out-of-school adolescents. This study sought answers to questions on the level of knowledge about modes of HIV transmission and misconceptions about HIV; predictors of knowledge of HIV; and the relationship between knowledge of HIV and sexual behaviour among out-of-school adolescents (ages 10 to 19), in a slum in the city of Lagos.
