Additional Information: In press: This original,mixed-methods study examined children’s attitudes towards HIV and AIDS with total of 513 primary school children in Thailand. The findings showed a strong positive belief betwwen children's belief that HIV could be transmitted through casual contact and their negative attitudes towards their HIV-affected peers. After receiving HIV prevention education children’s attitudes were found to be more supportive. These findings are significant because suggest that HIV prevention education delivered through primary schools in Thailand can be an effective way to foster a more supportive and inclusive environment and reduce stigma and discrimination.
