Objective: to analyze the effect of interventions provided by audiovisual aid compared to traditional guidance in order to increase knowledge on sexually transmitted infections among young, adult, and older persons. Method: this is an effectiveness systematic review. Young, adult, and older persons are to be included. The intervention was supported by audiovisual aid. The initial search strategy was built on MEDLINE, and it will be adapted to the following databases: Scopus, Web of Science, CINAHL, the Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS via BVS), Cochrane, and Embase. There will not be a time or language delimitation. Selection and screening will be carried out by two independent reviewers. Standardized instruments will be used to carry out the critical analysis of the eligible studies. Regardless of methodological quality, these studies will go through a synthesis and data extraction process. If possible, these studies will be grouped into a statistical meta-analysis. PROSPERO registration number: CRD42022374619.
