To plan further AIDS health promotion programmes information is needed about knowledge and attitudes relating to HIV infection among the general public. This article reviews the results of Italian studies conducted from 1990 to 1994 on young's knowledge and behaviour related to HIV infection. Eighteen studies were identified. The results show a good level of knowledge of the means of transmitting the virus, but suggest that the information does not necessarily involve a change in attitude and behaviour.
