Papua and West Papua Provinces have the highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS among all provinces in Indonesia. Also, reports of high risk sexual behaviour in the Papuan community, including having multiple partners and starting sexual relationships at an early age, have motivated researchers to introduce a sexual education for young people in the two provinces. To date, little is known about the sexual knowledge, attitude and behavioural intentions of young people in the two provinces.
