Abstract
Health Belief Model, a health behavior change model identified risk perception as one of the important constructs of public health interventions. 1 It is an individual's perceived susceptibility to a threat, often found to be assessed in the context of HIV prevention programs. 1, 2 The model elucidates that perception of risk to illness and understanding the significance of prevention should translates to positive health behavior. 3 HIV interventions emphasize awareness about modes of transmission and correct assessment of risk as to the key elements in adopting safe sex practices. 4 Worldwide studies in various cultures in diverse communities proved that low-risk perception was influenced by low knowledge about HIV, sex at young age, multiple sexual partners, no or low condom use. 1 Unfortunately, there is scarce evidence around these associations in the Indian context.
