Socio-demographic predictors about safe sex behaviours in individual suffering from immune deficiency virus (HIV) had been tried to understand in this cross-sectional study. It was conducted on 120 individuals having immune deficiency virus (HIV). Collection of the data were based on socio-demographic and a safe sex behaviour questionnaire. To determine the socio-demographic the general linear model was used. Result revealed mean (SD) of the total score of safe sexual behaviour among men and women was 66.5 (13.1), 62.2 (13.0) respectively and (Score limit: 0-100). Status of sexual partners, unprotected vaginal sex, drugs and alcohols, as well as employment status, were considered as predictors of safe sex behaviours. About 50 percent of the participants pose unsafe sexual practices, thus, it is advisable that the health promotion programs and HIV prevention should implement in various groups of the society. |
