HIV/AIDS knowledge among Somali and Sudanese immigrants in Denmark
This study explores the knowledge, attitudes and practices among Somali and Sudanese immigrants in Denmark with regard to HIV/AIDS and condom use. The study suggests that knowledge about HIV/AIDS is low in the two immigrant groups. The group receives little information, while condom knowledge is particularly low among poorly educated women; men have a negative attitude to condom use. The findings indicate a need for targeted HIV/AIDS information and advice provided in a culturally sensitive way.
