This paper presents information on changes in public knowledge and attitudes to HIV/AIDS in Wales between 1987 and 1992.
The results indicate that throughout this period the majority of adults in Wales were aware of the high risk of infection from sexual intercourse and sharing needles with, and coming into contact with the blood of, someone with HIV.
Nevertheless, the proportion who said that sexual intercourse with someone with HIV carries a high risk declined, and in 1992 confusion still remained about the nature of HIV infection amongst a substantial minority of respondents.
