Internet-based technologies as source of sexual and HIV/AIDS related health information among Addis Ababa University students
Internet-based sources are gaining recognition as a powerful and low cost method to deliver health related intervention information even in developing countries. Ethiopia is one of the developing countries that show development from time to time in diverse aspects. The work in progress tries to study the utilization of internet-based technologies as source of sexual and HIV/AIDS related health information as well as the factors associated with utilization of internet-based technologies among undergraduate students of Addis Ababa University (AAU). A Cross-sectional survey study method was used to determine the utilization level among undergraduate students of the university. Self-administered questionnaire was used to collect quantitative data from randomly selected eligible students. The study shows that, although the actual utilization of internet-based and digital sources for sexual and an HIV/AIDS purpose is low, it can be a promising strategy to use it in delivering such contents of information effectively and efficiently through expanding its access.
