CPU 2015-3: Knowledge about, Attitude towards Reproductive Health and Health-Seeking Behavior of Adolescents in Iloilo City

The main objective of this study was to assess the knowledge of and attitude towards Reproductive Health (RH) and their relationship to the health-seeking behavior of adolescents in all high schools in Iloilo City. This is a descriptive-relational study that used the one-shot survey design. The respondents were the 332 randomly selected fourth year students enrolled in private and public high schools supervised by DepEd and Higher Education Institutions. Results revealed that the majority of the students belonging to the younger age group are females, enrolled in public high school and residing within Iloilo City; had average level of knowledge about RH; had neutral attitude towards RH; and with good health seeking behavior. A significant relationship existed between: the type of school where the students are enrolled and their knowledge about and attitude towards RH; students' sex, type of school where they are enrolled, location of residence, attitude and their health seeking behavior; knowledge about and their attitude towards RH. No significant relationship existed between: the students' age, sex, and location of residence and their knowledge about and attitude towards RH; students' age and knowledge about RH and health-seeking behavior; and knowledge about RH and their health-seeking behavior when attitude was controlled.
