Alternative Data Sources
The data for each indicator on African Health Stats (AHS) are published by the UN agency, or UN inter-agency group, which holds responsibility for global monitoring of the indicator. This varies by indicator. Please refer to ‘Data Source’. AHS uses data from these sources because such data are internationally comparable and it is the mandate of those agencies to prepare such data and monitor progress internationally. In some cases the UN agency has made adjustments to the data in order to make national data internationally comparable, for example they may adjust national estimates to account for differences in survey design, the extent of potential underreporting, and the definition of what is being measured (eg. maternal deaths). This means that at times there may be discrepancies between national and international estimates. Individual countries may prefer to instead rely on national figures for national monitoring. For uniformity, AHS uses only international estimates of the UN agencies in data visualisations.
In 2014, the following countries communicated that they use alternative figures to monitor the indicator HIV Knowledge (Men aged 15-24 yrs) instead of the figures that appear in AHS data visualisations. The most recent alternative figure supplied by these countries, by source are: Zimbabwe 2013 56.4 (no source).
A national survey was undertaken in each country from a representative sample of households during which men aged 15-24 are asked about their knowledge of HIV/AIDS using a list of the following five questions.
1. Can the risk of HIV transmission be reduced by having sex with only one uninfected partner who has no other partners?
2. Can a person reduce the risk of getting HIV by using a condom every time he or she has sex?
3. Can a healthy-looking person have HIV?
4. Can a person get HIV from mosquito bites?
5. Can a person get HIV by sharing food with someone who is infected?
These five questions will test if they can correctly identify the two main ways of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV (using a condom and limiting sex to one faithful, uninfected partner), and rejecting the most common misconceptions about HIV transmission. If the man answers all questions correctly, he is considered to have a comprehensive and correct knowledge of HIV/AIDS.
This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of men aged 15-24 who gave the correct answers to all five questions by the total number of men aged 15-24 who responded to the survey.
