Now I would like to talk with you about what you know about serious illness, in particular, about HIV and AIDS.
Have you ever heard of the virus HIV or an illness called AIDS?
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This question leads off the discussion about HIV and AIDS, serving as an introduction. The purpose of this question, and the next seven questions, is to estimate a person's level of basic knowledge about HIV transmission and AIDS. If a respondent has never heard of the HIV virus or AIDS, skip to Q. 18 at the end of this module, drawing a line through the skipped questions.
