Review published: 2010.

Bibliographic details: Shepherd J, Kavanagh J, Picot J, Cooper K, Harden A, Barnett-Page E, Jones J, Clegg A, Hartwell D, Frampton GK, Price A.  The effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of behavioural interventions for the prevention of sexually transmitted infections in young people aged 13-19: a systematic review and economic evaluation. Health Technology Assessment 2010; 14(7): 1-206.

Quality assessment

This review concluded that school-based skills building behavioural interventions could bring about improvements in knowledge and increased self-efficacy. However, there were few significant differences between interventions and comparators in terms of sexual behavioural outcomes such as condom use. These conclusions are likely to be reliable but the possibility of publication and language bias should be considered. Full critical summary

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
