  <dc:description>This study investigated the cognitive, health behavior, reasoned action and planned behaivor assessment on HIV/AIDS among openly homosexual men. The respondents of the study were 50 openly homosexual students and professors. Snowball sampling was employed. This descriptive study utilized a standardized questionnaire divided into three parts formulated by Carey and Schroder, and Tlou  wherein parametric measures and scoring stencils were employed. The study revealed that cognition of openly homosexual men about HIV/AIDS imposes the need for further awareness programs. Additionally, the health behavior of the respondents was shown to have poor to fair standings in terms of condom use, HIV test seeking, and monogamy data. Furthermore, reasoned action and planned behavior of the respondents’ behavioral index denotes that they had above-average behavioral control in relation to their subjective norm. Similarly, the data suggested that their social circles greatly affects their perception of HIV and their adherence on the proper method in terms of HIV testing, condom use and faithfulness to their partners. Evaluations of cognitive assessment and the health behavior index, reasoned action, and planned behavior were not linked while the relationship between the three variables was found to be concomitant. Further findings revealed that there is no significant relationship between cognitive assessment and health behavioral index (p=0.98). There was also no significant relationship found between cognitive assessment and reasoned action and planned behavior (behaviour intention (p=0.98), attitude (p=0.165), subjective norms (p=0.272) and perceived behaviour control (p=0.181). Health behaviour index on the other hand had a significant relationship with reasoned action and planned behaviour (behaviour intention (p=0.00), attitude (p=0.00), subjective norms (p=0.00) and perceived behaviour control (p=0.00)).</dc:description>
