Abstract With increasing numbers of HIV/AIDS patients, physicians, dentists, and nurses taking care of these patients should have sufficient knowledge of the disease and consequently adopt suitable precautionary behaviour. The aim of this study was to examine the level of knowledge about HIV/AIDS among students from a medicine faculty, dentistry faculty and medical technology vocational training school, to investigate attitudes and behaviour, and possible differences between first-year and final-year students. A questionnaire was administered to 357 students. Findings are discussed. Overall, they highlight an obvious lack of education among all three student groups.
