Aids Awareness in partnership with WWHI

Analysis of Survey on AIDS Awareness (2007)

Following our participation in the Women Work & Health Congress, Manana was invited by WWHI to be a partner in a survey that was done in two districts of Bihar (both having a large migrant population) to gauge the levels of awareness amongst the people, especially women, regarding HIV / AIDS. We translated the surveys (over 3000) from Hindi to English and tabulated all the data. We then did a block-wise analysis of what the data is indicating in terms of the economic conditions, literacy, employment, migration and AIDS awareness. The analysis has been submitted to WWHI and has been accepted.
