dc.description.abstract The reported study evaluated the effectiveness of the Zululand University HIV/AIDS peer educator programme. The evaluation was surnmative in nature. The research design was a pre-post-test control group design and both qualitative and quantitative methods were used for data collection and data analysis. The outcome measures used for the evaluation were changes in participants' HIV/AIDS knowledge, attitude, and behavioural practices. Results indicated that changes had occurred in the experimental groups attitudes regarding HIV/AIDS, knowledge of HIV/Aids, and the behavioural practices of the participants. A two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted on attitude, knowledge, and behavioural practices between gender and groups. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed that there were no significant differences in knowledge, attitude, or behavioural practices for both gender and groups. However, a qualitative analysis revealed that the programme was significantly beneficial to participants with regards to their own relationships and empowerment. It has been suggested that further research should be conducted using a larger time frame and larger sample for evaluation. en_US
