Subject Matter Native Americans
Abstract Surveyed 154 Native Americans about their knowledge, attitudes, and risk behaviors related to AIDS, as a basis for developing a culturally relevant AIDS prevention intervention. Found a generally high level of knowledge about HIVtransmission and prevention, although some misconceptions exist. Men have less accurate knowledge and more conservative attitudes on the issue.
