Abstract

ABSTRACT
This study aimed at assessing knowledge of HIV/AIDS among residents of three
rural communities in Nigeria. A total of 371 persons residing in selected rural
communities were recruited for this study. A structured questionnaire was used
to collect data from all participants. Results of the study showed a generally
high level of awareness of HIV/AIDS in all communities surveyed. However,
among study participants, knowledge of mode of prevention and management
of HIV infection was poor as was knowledge of HIV status and readiness
to utilize free voluntary counseling and testing for HIV/AIDS services. Scale-up
of HIV/AIDS education by relevant health authorities is strongly advocated.
