Description:Obtaining nationally representative estimates for HIV indicators is critical for evaluating a country’s response to the HIV epidemic. Population-based surveys with HIV testing provide national-level prevalence estimates and the opportunity to link HIV status with behavioural, social and other biological information.
Over the past decade, impressive strides have been made by the Government of Kenya in scaling up HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs in response to the Kenya’s HIV epidemic. The 2012 Kenya AIDS Indicator Survey (KAIS 2012) was the second AIDS Indicator Survey conducted in Kenya. KAIS 2012 provides comprehensive information on trends in HIV infection, behaviors that
place persons at risk for HIV infection, knowledge and aitudes around HIV/AIDS, and population- based coverage of HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs to understand the status of the HIV epidemic and impact of the national HIV response. These data provide the information needed for advocacy and for evaluating and improving interventions for HIV prevention, treatment and care. The KAIS 2012 builds upon the previous population-based HIV estimates derived in the rst Kenya AIDS Indicator Survey (KAIS 2007), allowing for comparisons of prevalence estimates and behavioural and programmatic indicators over time.
Findings from KAIS 2012 are summarised below and are described in detail in the chapters and Appendices of this report. Estimates have been weighted for the two-stage cluster sample design.
This report presents the results of univariate and bivariate analyses only; analyses are not adjusted for potential confounding factors. Throughout the report, the term signicant indicates a p-value less than 0.05. Marginally signicant indicates a p-value between 0.05 and 0.10, inclusive; and not signicant indicates a p-value greater than 0.10.
