Abstract

Objective: There are many adolescent health problems in Indonesia, particularly problems related to reproductive health. If adolescent reproductive health is not given adequate attention, this can lead to other adolescent health problems. Aside from parents, school staff also plays an important role in overcoming this health concern because educational staff is closer to adolescents than their parents. Teachers and friends can act as a resource for adolescents, providing them with reproductive health information. Therefore, the knowledge level of those at school, such as teachers and peer, about adolescent reproductive health is important. This research aims to determine the effects of adolescent reproductive health training on teacher and peer knowledge. Method: This research used an experimental design. A purposive sampling technique was used to recruit 26 students and 24 teachers, and a pretest and posttest were administered to one group without control group and then analyzed by Wilcoxon test. Results: The results showed that health training had a significant effect on teacher and peer knowledge with P < α (0.05). Conclusions: It can be concluded that training on adolescent reproductive health for teachers and peers can be implemented at every school to increase their knowledge and skills and to prevent unsafety adolescent sexual behavior.
