The present national survey of knowledge, attitudes and behaviours (KAB) of students and staff at technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges was the first to be conducted in this sector and served to obtain baseline measures on knowledge, attitudes and behaviour pertaining to HIV and related risk factors. This survey explored HIV/AIDS and related factors that affect the sector and which need to be addressed in order to mitigate the impact of the HIV and TB co-epidemic within it: 1. The overall knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards HIV/AIDS in the TVET sector; 2. Knowledge about specific aspects of HIV/AIDS and sources of information about it; 3. Students’ attitudes towards stigma; 4. Sexual behaviours and the scope of risky behaviours that may increase rate of HIV infections; 5. The effectiveness of existing HIV/AIDS programmes at TVETs.
