DiClemente R. J., Crosby R. A., Wingood G. M.

The risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and HIV infection is one of the most significant and immediate risks to the health and well being of adolescents. One promising strategy to protect adolescents from STD/HIV infection is to promote parental monitoring. In this article, we first review selected observational studies that provide evidence supporting the value of parental monitoring in reducing adolescents' risk of STD/HIV acquisition. Subsequently, we discuss the potential implications of the research in regards to clinic- and community-based STD/HIV prevention programs for adolescents.
