Abstract


Introduction: the sexual and reproductive health (SSR) is a general state of physical-mental and social well being. Understanding the sexual risk factors that lead to sexually transmitted diseases (ETS), allows the intervention of such factors, in order to improve this state. Methods: study of Knowledge, attitude and practices (CAP) with a probabilistic sampling by stratified and multiphase conglomerates in 2812 people between the ages of 10 69, located in urban and rural areas; an informed consent and approval was requested, according to the norm. Results: 2241 of the urban population (84%) and 426 of the rural population (16%) filled out the survey. The first sexual relation among men was at the age of 15 (range 10 25) and in women at the age of 17 (range 10 38). 92% of the survey is informed in regards to ETS; Only 47 (1.7%) received treatment. Conclusion: weaknesses were found in the sexual CAP that fall into a risky sexual experience and increase the risk factor for ETS. It was recommended to expand the action to strengthen the forces and promote the SSR, as well as complete sexual education according the Colombian norms.
