Abstract: This study explores the relationships between antenatal care and AIDS awareness and knowledge of methods of prevention and shows a strong connection between the two. But AIDS awareness and knowledge among married women is disturbingly low. Outreach and intervention efforts therefore need to focus on promoting comprehensive knowledge about prevention of AIDS, especially through the broadcast media.
