  1. Geographical variations in AIDS knowledge and attitude among adolescent girls of Jamaica.

    Article - En anglais

    This article examines geographical differences in AIDS knowledge and attitudes.

    Data from a survey of 900 adolescent girls in the Caribbean nation of Jamaica indicate significant differences across geography in AIDS knowledge and attitude.

    Adolescent girls in more central areas have access to different and more sources of information than those in more remote areas.

    They are also more likely to know persons with AIDS, be more knowledgeable about the clinical manifestations of AIDS, and be more realistic in assessing their susceptibility to HIV.

    The implications of geographical differences for AIDS education efforts are discussed.
