A self administered questionnaire, consisted of questions regarding demographic data, knowledge,attitude, and practice about AIDS, was used to collect data. Data were analyzed by SPSS software.Results:Most students in different grades and schools/faculties had high levels of knowledge (above 60%) about AIDS and its transmission routes. Among them, medical students had the highest level of knowledge, compared with other students (P<0.05). Most students (75.8%) indicated that they had been previously informed about AIDS through mass media (radio, TV). Seventy five percent of the samples had positive attitude towards preventive methods and believed that by strictly observing preventive behaviors, it is not only possible to reduce the chances of disease transmission, but also, to interact with AIDS afflicted individuals,properly.
