Interviewer instructions
The following questions ask the respondent about specific ways to avoid HIV transmission. They focus on programmatically important ways to avoid HIV - by limiting the number of partners and by using condoms. They also probe into misconceptions concerning HIV transmission, through mosquito bites or sharing food, for example. 

For questions HA2-HA8, circle the code for the response given. If the respondent cannot provide a 'Yes' or 'No' answer, circle '8' for 'DK'. Do not prompt the respondent or indicate the 'correct' answer in any way.
