  1. Sociocultural aspects of AIDS in an urban peripheral area of Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire).

    Article - En anglais

    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:

    • younger people;

    • people with a higher education;

    • and wealthier people.

    Men respond correctly to questions more frequently than women.
