Abstract:
This study centers on the HIV/AIDS awareness investigation in two north central states (Kogi and Niger States) of Nigeria. A total of 100 respondents were investigated on their level of awareness of HIV/AIDS as it affects their fishing activities. It was discovered that a greater percentage (about 94%) of the respondents were aware of the disease but did not know their status. About 10% got their information from health workers while about 6% got their information from friends and relatives. Recommendations were given for better management of our fisher folks in respect of the dreaded disease HIV/AIDS for a good and balanced production.
