It was revealed that most men and women in Karnataka favoured inclusion of information on HIV/AIDS in the school curriculum. More than nine-tenths of men and almost three-fourths of women thought boys and girls should be taught about sexual behaviour in school. “Similarly, 82 % of men think that both boys and girls should be taught about condom use to avoid sexually transmitted diseases, compared with only 43 to 45 % of the women,” the survey said.
It indicated that 70 % of women and 87 % of men in Karnataka had never heard of HIV/AIDS. Awareness about the disease would be a critical step in curbing the number of new HIV cases in the State, it said.
