Nicaragua has the lowest prevalence of AIDS in Central America.
In other countries where AIDS is more prevalent, the first epidemic of asymptomatic infections with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the second of clinical cases of AIDS have been followed by a third epidemic of fear and discrimination.
In December 1989 a study was conducted to investigate knowledge and attitudes about AIDS in a sampled of 287 adults in Managua.
Most of the interviewees had heard of the disease from newspapers and television, and more than 90% understood how HIV was principally transmitted.
