Non-Governmental Organisations’ Activities and Control of HIV/AIDS in Abi and Yakurr Local Government Areas of Cross River State, Nigeria
AbstractThe study sought to investigate the activities of non-governmental organisations as regards the control of HIV/AIDS in Abi and Yakurr Local Government Areas of Cross River State, Nigeria. To guide the study, two hypotheses were evolved. Data were collected using “NGOs Activities and Control of HIV/AIDS intervention Questionnaire (NGOAACHIQ). Using the stratified and simple random sampling techniques, a total of five hundred and five (505) subjects were selected as the study sample. Data collected were subjected to statistical treatment using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient technique. Results obtained indicated that there was a positive relationship between NGO’s awareness creation and condom use
as HIV/AIDS control measure. Again, no significant relationship was found between NGOs’ economic empowerment activities and HIV/AIDS control in the study area. Based on these findings, recommendations were made.
