A comparative analysis of the DHS AIDS module in 1995 and the MOH 1995 KABP survey, stratified by urban and rural sectors could provide a useful test of validity. If these surveys are reasonably comparable, then the DHS survey could become a key instrument for evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions in many countries, and possibly be more cost-efficient than country- initiated AIDS KABP surveys which have an estimated cost of $30,000.
Of particular interest will be a comparative analysis of the Uganda 1995 DHS survey with those done in Zambia and Malawi in 1996 (with similar AIDS modules). The Uganda 1995 KABP was shared with Macro and request was made for such a comparative analysis to be done. If possible the following comparative analyses of Uganda data would be useful:
Þ AIDS knowledge: urban/rural, by sex and education.
Þ Sex with non-regular partner: urban/rural, by sex and education:
Þ Condom use in last sex with non regular partner: urban/rural, by sex and education:
Þ Knowledge of AIDS death in friend or relative: urban, rural, sex and education.
Þ Age of sexual debut.
N.B The following comparative analyses of the Uganda DHS and the 1995 MOH KABP were performed. The findings are preliminary but are generally comparable to those of the 1995 MOH KABP and are presented in the following supplementary figures.
Age of sexual debut:
