A quasi-experimental study with single group pretest-posttest design was conducted to assess the effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on prevention and control of HIV/AIDS among the adolescent girl students’ of the selected schools of Sri Muktsar Sahib. A total of 50 adolescent girl students were chosen as study subjects with the help of random sampling technique. Structured Teaching Programme on the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS was developed. Based on Structured Teaching Programme, a questionnaire was framed to assess the pretest-posttest knowledge scores of study subjects’. Descriptive and inferential statistical tests were used for data analysis. Mean posttest knowledge scores (22.94) of subjects after administration of Structured Teaching Programme was found to be significantly (p<0.01) higher than their mean pretest knowledge score (12.64). In pretest, majority 29 (58%) of subjects secured average knowledge scores followed by 20 (40%) who were having poor knowledge scores. Only 1(2%) subject had secured very poor knowledge score. None of the subject had good or very good level of knowledge in pretest. After the administration of Structured Teaching Programme, the level of knowledge scores of subjects increased as the result of posttest almost shows half of the subjects 26 (52%) achieved good level of knowledge score followed by 18 (36%) who attained very good level of knowledge. Only 6 (12%) were having average level of knowledge score. None of the subjects were found to be having poor or very poor level of knowledge scores. Findings suggest that there was no statistically significant (p>0.05) association between posttest knowledge scores of subjects on prevention and control of HIV/AIDS and their age, educational status, type of family and monthly family income. Hence, administration of Structured Teaching Programme was very effective on adolescent girls regarding prevention and control of HIV/AIDS.
