A STUDY OF THE PREVALENCE OF HIV/AIDS USING CANONICAL CORRELATION ANALYSIS (A CASE STUDY OF GENERAL HOSPITAL MINNA)

ABSTRACT
This research aimed at fitting canonical correlation model that is capable of determining whether literacy level, age, marital status and gender are risk factors for HIV/AIDs. The data used is obtained from Heart to Heart center situated in General Hospital Minna, Niger State in June 2013. The Statistical package used to analyze the data is NCSS (Number Cruncher Statistical System) 2007 package and the result shows that the first set of variables measured the correlation of 0.2972 with the proportion of variability of 50.7% and the second set measured the correlation of 0.1412 with the proportion of variability of 49.3% . Hence, concluded that marital status and gender are risk factors of HIV/AIDs and implies that the prevalence of HIV/AIDS is higher among the married men.. I finally recommended that there is a need for the government to enact a Law that will make it mandatory for the two partners to undergo the HIV/AIDS test.

CHAPTER ONE


1.0         GENERAL INTRODUCTION


Since the discovery of Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as the causative organism of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in 1983, the infection has attained epidemic proportion globally. HIV/AIDS is an extraordinary kind of crisis; it is both an emergency and a long-term development issue. Tumer and Unal (2000) assert that (HIV/AIDS) is one of the most complex health problems of the 21st century. Despite increased funding, political commitments and progress in expanding access to HIV treatment, the AIDS epidemic continues to outpace every global response.

Today the AIDS epidemic has become a pandemic disease that is threatening the world population. As the HIV/AIDS pandemic continues to spread around the world at an alarming rate, the number of people with this disease is been expected to grow significantly by the end of this decade. Moreover according to UNAIDS (2006); an estimated 24.7million people are living with HIV/AIDS in sub Saharan Africa. Meyer (2003) claims that HIV/AIDS which is acclaimed the fourth- leading cause of death worldwide is estimated to have claimed 25million lives since the beginning of the epidemic.

Acquired immune Deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a viral disease caused by human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that is usually found in body fluids like blood, semen, vagina fluid, and breast milk of infected persons. The virus can be transferred from one infected person to another, mostly through sexual intercourse and sharing of unsterilized instruments like blades, knives, and syringes which had once been used by infected persons.
