I have been always interested in the notion of providing effective health education to vulnerable people by promoting positive attitudes towards practicing healthy behaviour. In particular, I would like to focus on providing HIV and AIDS education for girls and young women in Iran. This inquiry is an extension of my Master’s research where I explored promoting positive attitudes towards safer sex practices among young adults in an online environment. Albeit  the rate of HIV infection in Iran is not very high, the growth rate is noteworthy.  I am interested in ways to develop effective educational model that is culturally sensitive, gender specific and age appropriate.
