Abstract: We evaluated knowledge and practice of Lebanese university students regarding contraception in a cross-sectional, comparative study on students in public and private universities using an Arabic language self-administered questionnaire. We found low levels of knowledge of contraception. The majority of males [73.3%] and a few females [21.8%] declared previous sexual relations: the majority of males had used a condom [86.1%], but females had generally not used contraceptives [75.6%]
