Knowledge of seafarers about AIDS problems and their vulnerability to HIV infection



Knowledge of seafarers about AIDS problems and their vulnerability to HIV infection



Bulletin of the Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine in Gdynia 46(1-4): 19-22



The results of a questionnaire survey conducted among 243 seafarers in Rijeka in 1989-1990 indicated that the knowledge of ratings among them on AIDS and HIV virus transmission was inadequate. The majority of them had not used condoms for protection against HIV virus infection. More education on AIDS should be given to seafarers, particularly those employed on ships flying flags of developing countries.
