Young people are at increasing risks of becoming HIV/AIDS infected. Having multiple sexual partners has been identified as one of major risky sexual behaviors which contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS. Risky sexual behavior and high prevalence of depression among Chinese adolescents are well documented. Previous studies indicated that depressed adolescents may manifest higher rates of risky sexual behavior. Problem Behavior Theory has proposed that adolescents? problem behaviors such as substance use and risk-taking behaviors may co-occur. People who use substance are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior.  This cross-sectional study was designed to examine the effects of age, gender, substance use, self-efficacy, and depression on multiple sexual partners in Chinese adolescents.  Of the 169 sexually experienced, 16-18 years-old, Taiwanese high school students, 40.2% of them reported having more than 3 sexual partners up to now.  Results indicated that adolescents who are older, studying in private school, having substance use history are more likely to have multiple sexual partners (>3). Depressed adolescents had lower likelihood to report having multiple sexual partners.  Findings suggest that there is a need for implementing HIV/AIDS intervention program which focus on Taiwanese adolescents who use substances in private high school. Information provided in this study could be utilized by nurses to identify the high risk adolescents who may be at high risk of being HIV/AIDS infected.
