Background and Objectives: The number of people with AIDS disease morbidity is increasing and vehicle-born transmission is one way of disease spread. This study has designed to investigate the practice of male barbers about AIDS disease prevention based on Health Belief Model (HBM) in Fasa.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in 2014. The study population was a random multi-stage selection of 220 men who worked as barber in Fasa City. The data were collected through a self-administered questionnaire based on HBM Constructs, knowledge and demographic variables and analyzed by statistical methods such as linear regression through SPSS version 18.
Results: Findings showed that the knowledge was good, the perceived sensitivity was moderate, the perceived severity was low, the perceived benefits was up, the perceived barriers were low and the practice was good. Knowledge, perceived sensitivity and perceived benefits structures predict barbers' performance in preventing AIDS. In general, 31.5% of variance predicted performance variables.
Conclusion: Regarding the results of this study, it is possible to improve the performance of barbers by planning appropriately for raising awareness, perceived sensitivity and perceived benefits to AIDS, and this is important in preventing and controlling AIDS.
