dc.description.abstract There is an ongoing study on sexual behavior in Akaki factory workers and many KABP studies. A cross-sectional study on high risk behavior and knowledge on vaccines and their willingness to participate in HIV vaccine trial among randomly selected high school teachers was conducted from January 10 to 30, 2002 in Addis Ababa city. Mean age at first marriage for high school teachers was 26.7 years. Of the 621 high school teachers (26.4%) had engaged in commercial sex and 249 (40.1%) had non-regular noncommercial sexual contacts in the last 12 months prior to the survey. Mean age at first sexual intercourse was 18.7 years. Ever use of condoms by the high school teachers was 65.1%. Knowledge on HIV prevention was very low. However, knowledge on vaccines and their willingness to participate in HIV vaccine trial was very high and modestly high, respectively. Although it is recognized that the specific educational needs will vary in different contexts, our data support the need for incorporate vaccine trial’s education into the design and implementation of future HIV vaccine trials. Serial surveillance surveys are necessary to see the trend of change in behavior of the study population. HIV preventive messages should be repeatedly directed to high school teachers. There is a need to increase HIV awareness in high school teachers. en_US
