In a release from the Ministry, it was shared that the exercise pertains to a Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs and Practices (KABP) Survey on HIV/AIDS.
The survey has been commissioned by the Centre for Health Economics, The University of the West Indies (HEU).
Interviews are now underway, at different locations within the Federation. The survey is being administered by Field Workers who have been trained by the HEU.
The interviews are designed to measure the current impact of HIV/AIDS prevention efforts, in order to inform the development of policies and programmes. These workers will present a letter from the Ministry of Health and will be wearing an Identification Card with the St. Kitts and Nevis Coat of Arms, as well as the logo of the National Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (NACHA).
The survey which commenced on 25th October is expected to conclude 30th November.
The Ministry of Health is assuring the public that all responses are strictly confidential and therefore all residents who are contacted are being urged to give their fullest cooperation.
