Objectives: To determine the effect of the CD Xero Risk Planet on Lima school teenagers knowledge, attitudes and practices on relation to STD and HIV/AIDS. Materials and Methods: The study was done in a random sample of fourth and fifth grade high school students from 26 schools. A questionnaire of knowledge, attitudes and practices was applied to 454 teenagers (14 to 17 years old), before and after the use of the educational CD. Results: Twenty-two percent of interviewed teenagers had had sex, about 8% had undergone some type of sexual abuse. Knowledge on STD and HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention increased (20%, 21% and 16%, respectively) following the intervention. Also, 9% more teenagers think to use condom during their sexual relations. Conclusions: The Xero Risk Planet CD has been acknowledged by young people as a useful and entertaining way of learning on STDs and HIV/AIDS prevention. The results of the study demonstrate that this educational tool significantly improved young peoples’ knowledge on the subject.
