Abstract

Sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) are a group of diseases which are primarily transmitted through sexual contact. STDs easily spread from one person to another. The low level of knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of the community regarding STDs causes the case to be more of big concern. This study aimed to determine the relationship between knowledge, attitude, and behaviour in patient of STDs at Puskesmas Abang I, Karangasem. The study method used was cross-sectional analytic with questionnaires as the instrument. The variables studied were knowledge, attitude, behaviour, and occurrence of STDs. The study samples were STDs patients who visited the Puskesmas Abang I, who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Sampling was carried out by consecutive sampling method. The collected data were analysed by using computerized program with Chi-Square test (α = 0.05). A total of 49 participant’s was enrolled in the study. The result indicated that there was no relationship between knowledge and attitude (p=1.000), knowledge and behaviour (p=0.669) and attitude and behaviour (p=0.299). There is a need for counselling to be conducted by Puskesmas Abang I and the need for a program from the Ministry of Health to reduce the occurrence of STDs.
