The main purposes of this study were to explore the relationships between AIDS's preventive behavioral intentions and the related factors for junior high students in Taipei area. A total 642 effective questionnaires were collected from randomly sampled 7th, 8th and 9th students from two schools in Taipei city. The results of this study were summarized as the followings: 1. The averaged scores of AIDS's preventive knowledge of the students were above average. The AIDS's preventive attitudes of the students were positive, and the AIDS's preventive behavioral intentions of the students was good. 2. Gender, The AIDS's preventive knowledge, and AIDS's preventive attitude could significantly predict AIDS's preventive behavioral intensions. AIDS's preventive attitude was the best predictor for AIDS's preventive behavioral intensions. As the AIDS's preventive knowledge and attitudes of junior high students affected AIDS's preventive behavioral intentions of the students, significantly we suggest that school health education on AIDS prevention should be continue in junior high schools, to maintain the junior high students' long-term positive attitude about AIDS prevention.
