AIDS Knowledge in Poland "Is Still Scandalously Low"

December 9, 2008

According to research cited by the daily newspaper Dziennik, Poles often hold erroneous beliefs about HIV/AIDS. Many think the disease affects only homosexuals and drug users; one-third think HIV can be contracted from a toilet seat; and 60 percent said they had had sex without using condoms. "We live in the 21st century, but Poles' knowledge of AIDS and HIV is still scandalously low," said Janusz Majchrzak of the Plus Network, which assists HIV patients.
