Abstract:
Background and objective

Measuring the knowledge and attitudes of HIV/AIDS Infected can reflect the success or failure of AIDS treatment centers, including the quality of education and the promotion of health knowledge in this regard. The study aimed to determine the level of Knowledge and Attitude about AIDS in Infected People with HIV in Jahrom.

Materials and methods

This descriptive cross-sectional study was carried outon 55 HIV/AIDS Infected in 2017. The subjects were selected statistically from patients with active records in the counseling center. The data collection method was interview via standard questionnaires.

Results

Overall, 65.5% of the patients were introduced to the Center for the Study of Behavioral Disorders by their physician, 52.7% reported that they were afraid to go to the center for the first time and 65.5% reported that it was difficult for them to get access to this center. In general, 52.7% of patients had a good knowledge, 12.7% had an average knowledge and 34.6% had a poor knowledge. Moreover, 52.7% had a moderate attitude, 45.5% had a poor attitude and 1.8% had a good attitude toward AIDS. There was no significant relationship between knowledgelevel and attitude of patients (p>0.05).

Conclusion

The subjects’ knowledge of AIDS was relatively good, but their level of knowledge was quite low on the ways to prevent disease transmission. On the other hand, the studied patients had a negative attitude towards AIDS. This suggests the discrimination against HIV/AIDS Infected and could be due to poor knowledge of AIDS in the community
