  1. Knowledge of AIDS and HIV among various groups.

    Article - En anglais

    To date, no cure has been found for HIV/AIDS.

    Preventiion has therefore been the immediate principal aim and a didactic approach has been given a primary role.

    Studies from the USA indicate that knowledge level may be dictated by membership of particular subcultural groups and the perceived relevance of HIV/AIDS to these groups.

    This study investigates knowledge among four groups:

    • homosexual;

    • single heterosexual;

    • IV drug users;

    • and a « married » group.

    Results indicate some gaps in knowledge and a greater knowledge base among one of the high risk groups, the homosexual group.
