    Research package: knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and practices on AIDS (KABP). Phase 2. Draft.

    World Health Organization [WHO]. Global Programme on AIDS. Social and Behavioural Research Unit

    [Unpublished] 1990 Jan 26. vii, 169 p.

    In 1988, research teams from 17 countries from all regions of Africa met in Ethiopia to assess how to develop a broad, adaptable knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and practices (KAP) survey and interview schedule for AIDS research. Subsequently, researchers from North and South America and Europe have been involved in adapting the African KAP surveys to their regions. This document presents the research documents resulting from that work. Organized into four parts, this WHO draft document has been prepared to permit researchers to follow a standardized approach to this type of research and to generate information that will be comparable between countries. Part one covers the introduction. Part two deals with the study design, including the conceptual framework, objectives, training, ethical issues, and information dissemination. The interviewers' manual is described in part three. This section includes information on locating subjects in the community, conducting interviews, fieldwork, training interviewers, and detailed notes on the individual questionnaire. Finally, part four presents models of each of the tabulation plans.

    Interview schedule for Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs and Practices on AIDS. Phase I: African countries. A. Household form. B. Community characteristics. C. Individual questionnaire.

    World Health Organization [WHO]. Global Programme on AIDS. Social and Behavioural Research Unit

    [Unpublished] 1989 Feb. 28 p.

    The household interview form has spaces in which to designate a household's location and track interviewer visits with notation of visit results. Basic information can be recorded about the people over age 10 years who usually live in the household or who slept in the household on the preceding night. Data are then taken on the community characteristics form on the type of locality, travel time to the nearest large town, and facilities available in the community. The individual questionnaire is for people aged 15-64 years who slept in the household on the preceding night and is comprised of the following sections: identification; individual characteristics; awareness of AIDS; knowledge on AIDS; sources of information; beliefs, attitudes, and behavior; knowledge of and attitudes toward condoms; sexual practices; injection practices; locus of control; IV drug use; and drinking habits.
