The prevalence of HIV/AIDS in all regions in Indonesia is always increasing, including in Central Java. This case also often occurs in the group of adolescents aged 15-24 years and having status as students. Cumulatively until 2018, there have been 27,000 students in Central Java indicated as having HIV/AIDS. These risk factors are caused by their behavior, especially premarital sexual behavior. These risky behaviors can be caused by their perception. This research uses descriptive analytic design. The study population was high school students in Central Java. A sample of 322 students was divided proportionally between men and women. Data analysis was performed descriptively and comparatively. The results showed that most students had a moderate perception of HIV/AIDS risk behavior. There is no significant difference in perception between male and female students and there are differences in perceptions between students in urban and rural areas towards HIV/AIDS risk behavior.
