Sexual behaviors and drug use among youth in dropout-prevention programs--Miami, 1994.

Abstract

Youth who have dropped out of school have higher frequencies than youth who remain in school of behaviors that increase risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (1). Youth identified as potential dropouts may be likely to take increased risks, but their STD/HIV risk status has not been adequately evaluated. To estimate the prevalence of risk behaviors among potential dropouts, investigators from the University of Miami School of Medicine surveyed students in two Miami dropout-prevention programs (school A and school B) and compared the findings with those from a survey of public school students in Miami. This report summarizes results of the surveys.
