Abstract

A preliminary study about supplementary book as learning resource on reproductive health was carried out to investigate the profile of students’ knowledge on adolescent reproductive health. This study used descriptive quantitative method with the involvement of 154 middle school students from different public schools, namely SMPN 6 Makassar (urban) and SMPN 1 Bontonompo (suburban) based on purposive sampling. The data were collected using an adolescent reproductive health test which was developed based on aspects of knowledge on reproductive health that are important for adolescents according to the National Population and Family Planning Board (BKKBN) and a set of adolescent reproductive health information questionnaire. Research results show that their knowledge about adolescence’ reproductive health is very poor, girls’ knowledge is higher than boys’ knowledge. While upper grade students have better knowledge than lower grade, and students‘ knowledge from urban is higher than those from suburban. Students’ knowledge about the reproductive organ structure–function, adolescent growth and development, pregnancy and contraception, disorder aspects on reproductive organs, sexually transmitted diseases, deviant behavior and sexual orientation are very poor. Whereas students’ knowledge about social aspects is moderate. All students got information about adolescent reproductive health, mostly from their school teachers (90.26%) and from textbooks (90.26%). The information most likely students eager to know is information about reproductive organ health (51.30%). The result of this study will be used as basis to develop supplementary book about adolescent reproductive health, which then can be used as additional learning resource for middle school students who are in the adolescence age or as teenagers.
