Sociocultural aspects of AIDS in an urban peripheral area of Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire).
This study aimed to gain a better understanding of the social dynamics - migration, urbanization, the status of women, education - related to AIDS in an urban peripheral area of Abidjan.
Structured interviews were administered to 420 people, selected through cluster random sampling.
Focus groups and semi-structured interviews were performed with key-informants.
The results show that 26.9% of the interviewees are foreigners and 40% of all people interviewed participate in ethnic associations.
Knowledge of AIDS is associated with age, gender, educational level and purchasing power.
Those who are generally better informed about AIDS are:
people with a higher education;
and wealthier people.
Men respond correctly to questions more frequently than women.
