Sexual behaviors relevant to HIV transmission in a rural African population : how much can a KAP survey tell us ?
KAP surveys have been proposed as a means to gather quantitative information on AIDS-related sexual behaviors, but the validity of survey results has not been tested.
The validity of data gathered during a KAP survey in a rural district in Northern Uganda (N=1486) was examined analyzing expected behavioral patterns, agreement of partner reports, and concordance of number of sexual contacts across gender.
Patterns of sexual behavior and age trends are as expected.
More men (50%) than women (18.5%) reported premarital sex.
The likelihood of sexual intercourse before marriage increases with age at first marriage and with education.
Women marry 5 years earlier than men, and the number of marriages increases with age.
