Interviewer instructions
This module is to be administered to all women aged 15-49 years (including woman age 15 and age 49). The purpose of this module is to obtain information to help programme managers and policy makers plan more effective programmes to prevent HIV infection. The questions assess knowledge, attitudes and behaviour related to AIDS transmission, prevention and testing for the virus that causes AIDS. 

First, questions are asked to estimate the respondent's basic knowledge about HIV transmission and AIDS.

This question serves as an introduction and allows us to verify whether a respondent has heard of AIDS. If there is a local term for AIDS, use the local term in addition to 'AIDS'. 

If a respondent has never heard of the HIV virus or AIDS, go to the next module.
