  1. The impact of AIDS in a rural Ugandan community.

    Article - En anglais

    Three AIDS related surveys have been conducted on a community based cohort in the Kasangati defined area, Uganda, during 1987, 1990 and 1992.

    The 1987 baseline survey recruited 1990 adult, and in addition to assessing levels or knowledge, attitudes and practices, HIV serology was done on all the study participants.

    During the 1992 survey, our objectives were threefold: (i) to assess the attitudes and behaviours relevant to AIDS and to evaluate the magnitude of any changes since 1987, (ii) to assess the socioeconomic impact of AIDS and, (iii) to asess the effect of AIDS on the mortality trends in the area.

    It was found that the percentage of people who had ever used a condom increased from 4% in 1987 to 10% in 1992, but those who used condoms frequently remained the same at 10%.
