The objectives of this study were to determine the knowledge and attitude toward STI prevention, and actual situation of infections (chlamydia and gonorrhea infections) among out-of-school youth in the Philippines. As many as 129 out-of-school youth age 13-20 years old were participated in this study in September 2017. A self-administered questionnaire was used to assess characteristics, knowledge of STIs; sexual behavior; counselors for sexual problems; access to the internet; concerns about STIs; coping with STI symptoms using the scenario setting; sexual risks for STIs; and opinion. The presence or absence of chlamydia and gonorrhea infections in urine was determined with using Aptima Combo 2 Assay. Data was analyzed statistically with using mean, standard deviation, percentage, Mann-Whitney U, and Chi-square. p Value of <0.05 were considered statistically significant. The subjects were concerned about STI and had basic knowledge toward STI prevention but negative attitude toward safer sex. On the urine test, ten out of 126 participants (7.9%) had positive reactions about chlamydia and three of them were co-infection with gonorrhea. Female participants were much more likely to get infected (12.8%) than male (3.2%). In conclusion, the knowledge toward STI prevention had no correlation with their attitude. Therefore, sexual education is not enough to focus on STI knowledge but also put more emphasis on practice to promote safer sexual behavior.
