Description:
Currently, one of the most important diseases in the world is HIV/AIDS. Many organizations and NGOs have provided resources to tackle this disease, though the number of infections is still increasing. One of the reasons behind this phenomena is that there is still lack of knowledge and/or misconceptions on how to prevent infection among the population. It is necessary to study the knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes in every population of interest in order to create the appropriate educational programs and change disease trends in the near future. Making people more aware of the risks, how can they protect themselves, and how they can get tested for the disease is necessary in order to stop further spread of the infection. The objective of this study is to investigate knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes among adult women of reproductive age (WRA) from the poor and middle-income classes of Filipino society.
