Abstract :

Anganwadi workers (AWW) are the key persons to inform the community regarding approach towards diseases like HIV/ AIDs, sound knowledge of the subject is therefore essential. To assess awareness of AWW regarding high risk behavior in HIV/AIDs, a cross–sectional study was done among 30 AWW from ICDS project–1, Pune. They were divided into four groups. Each group was assigned seven case studies and was asked to rank them according to risk of transmission. Group C ranked sequencing of given case studies correctly. The remaining three groups B, A, D were in the second, third and fourth positions respectively. Eight of the study group could answer it correctly meaning their level of knowledge related to HIV/AIDs is inadequate. Assessing AWWs knowledge on HIV/AIDs and high risk behavior using case studies was an innovative idea to assess their awareness. AWWs were found to have inadequate knowledge related to high risk behavior for HIV/AIDs, therefore training programme is recommended.
