Abstract:
HIV/AIDS has become one of the most serious public health problems throughout world including India. The young adults particularly the females are more prone to HIV infection. There may be the role of poor knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS among the young adult female for such vulnerability. This present study was done to find out the HIV/AIDS knowledge level among the female college students in a remote district of India. Altogether 147 Neuropsychologically healthy female students from the different department of Arts Faculty were included. Some demographic parameters including caste, family size and birth orders were associated with poor knowledge in HIV/AIDS. The knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS was varied among the students learning different subjects at the undergraduate level (F=2.951; P<0.05). This study indicated that only 25.85% students have excellent knowledge in HIV/AIDS. This finding should be addressed by implementation of large scale health awareness programme as early as possible.
