1 AIDS Knowledge Test Instructions This survey has True/False questions. For example: Pittsburgh's hockey team is the Bruins. We want you to do two things: First, answer the question. In this example, you might think No, it's the Penguins. So the statement is FALSE. Then you would circle False. Pittsburgh's hockey team is the Bruins. Second, think about how sure you are of your answer. Give a number from 50% to 100%. In other words, what is the percent chance that you are right? Circle one of the numbers on the scale. If your answer is a total guess, circle 50%. This means that there is a 50% chance that you are right, and a 50% chance that you are wrong. If you are, circle 100%. If you aren t sure, then circle a number in between, to show how sure you are. In this example, you might think I'm it's false, so 100%. So you would circle 100%. Pittsburgh's hockey team is the Bruins. Page 1

3 It is easier to get the AIDS virus (HIV) from sharing needles than from unsafe sex. The AIDS test is always right. More than 1 out of 10 teenagers has the AIDS virus (HIV). When you get an AIDS test, you need to give them your name. The AIDS virus (HIV) makes your body weak right away. You can only get the AIDS virus (HIV) from someone who is gay. Most people can live with the AIDS virus (HIV) for 15 years. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). Having unsafe sex with them twice is riskier than having unsafe sex with them once. Page 3

4 Drinking from a glass that someone else drank from an hour ago can give you the AIDS virus (HIV). You can usually tell if a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). Most drug users won't share needles if they can get clean needles. People with AIDS can be turned down for health insurance. Almost all babies born to mothers with the AIDS virus (HIV) get full blown AIDS. Imagine that a person only has unsafe sex once. They have no reason to think they might have the AIDS virus (HIV). If a person is drunk, they will be just as likely to use a condom. Most people who know they have the AIDS virus (HIV) use condoms when they have sex. Page 4

5 Eating food while you are drinking makes you less drunk. You can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from blood that has dried on clothes. Imagine that a person got the AIDS virus (HIV) from a blood transfusion. They can't pass it on by having sex. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). Their body will make T-cells against the virus. When the immune system is weak, people are more likely to get a cold. Imagine a person who knows a lot about AIDS. They will be more likely to get an AIDS test. Today, blood transfusions are more likely to give you AIDS than they were in Page 5

6 Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). You will probably get it from shaking their hand. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). If they have money for health care, they won't get full blown AIDS as fast. Imagine a person who has a friend with AIDS. They will probably know more about AIDS than other people. Most people who get an AIDS test can predict what the result will be. In one hour, the body can get rid of the alcohol in about two cans of beer. As soon as you get the AIDS virus (HIV) in your body, you can give it to someone else right away. A person can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from a virgin. Page 6

7 Using saran wrap makes going down on a woman safer. Alcohol kills brain cells. Getting drunk often will make a person with full blown AIDS sicker. A person with AIDS can die from a cold. There is only one kind of AIDS virus. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). You can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from going down on them (oral sex). Imagine a person who knows a lot about AIDS. They will be more likely to try to find out if someone has the AIDS virus (HIV) before having sex with them. The first AIDS test that people get looks for antibodies to the AIDS virus (HIV). Page 7

8 Lambskin condoms stop the AIDS virus (HIV) just as well as latex condoms. The AIDS virus (HIV) is more widespread in Dayton, Ohio, than in Washington, DC. There are free clinics where people can get an AIDS test. Imagine that a person has AIDS. It is safer to go down on them (have oral sex) without a condom than to have vaginal sex (intercourse) with them without a condom. Taking a cold shower makes a drunk person s vision and balance better. You can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from having sex with someone, even if you know everyone they've been with. Feeling sick makes a person more likely to get an AIDS test. You can use alcohol to get rid of the AIDS virus (HIV) in drug needles. Page 8

9 Latex condoms will always keep you from getting the AIDS virus (HIV), if you use them the right way. The AIDS virus (HIV) is found in sweat. Imagine a person gets sick. They will be more likely to go to the doctor if they have health insurance than someone who doesn't. People who are under stress will probably drink more. Having HIV is the same thing as having AIDS. Imagine a person doesn't get the AIDS virus (HIV) the first time they have unsafe sex. They could still get it if they have unsafe sex with someone else. Getting drunk can change how you think about good and bad effects of having sex. Page 9

10 One shot of vodka will make you drunker than one beer. If people know how to protect themselves against AIDS, they will still be just as likely to get it. Doctors say you don't have to use condoms if you think you don't have the AIDS virus (HIV). Drinking coffee makes a drunk person think more clearly. In class, you learn mostly bad things about sex, drugs, and alcohol. AIDS means Acquired Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. There are more people with the AIDS virus (HIV) in the USA than in Europe. Page 10

11 Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). You will probably get it from tongue kissing with them. A person can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from having sex with a gay man who doesn't have it. If you feel healthy, you can be sure that you don t have the AIDS virus (HIV). People with AIDS can be fired from their jobs, even if they can do the work. A person can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from becoming a blood brother or blood sister. If a person thinks they have the AIDS virus (HIV), they will be more likely to get tested. A man can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from having sex with a woman who has it. Page 11

12 Imagine a person who has the AIDS virus (HIV). If they are already weak, they will get full blown AIDS faster. When two men have anal sex, the one getting it in the butt is more likely to get the AIDS virus (HIV). If a person is drunk, they worry more about whether their sex partner has the AIDS virus (HIV). You can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from getting your nose pierced with a clean needle. Imagine that a person has been drinking. They will be more likely to have a one night stand. Imagine someone tells you they don't have the AIDS virus (HIV). Smoking pot will help you tell if they are lying. HIV means Human Immune Vaccine. Page 12

13 Imagine that you got an AIDS test. If the test says you don't have the AIDS virus (HIV), you will never get it. Imagine a person who knows they have the AIDS virus (HIV). They will probably have unsafe sex. More women than men have the AIDS virus (HIV). Less than 30% of wife-abuse cases are related to alcohol or other drugs. It is safer to use condoms with nonoxynol-9 than condoms without it. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). Tongue kissing with them is just as risky as having oral sex with them (going down on them). Imagine that a person has an STD, such as gonorrhea or syphilis. They will be more likely to get the AIDS virus (HIV) than a person who doesn't have an STD. Page 13

14 Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). If you have unsafe sex with them once, you will get the AIDS virus (HIV) for sure. If you get the AIDS virus (HIV), it will take about 5 to 10 years before you get very sick. Sharing a drug needle is riskier than getting a tattoo in a tattoo parlor. Imagine that a person has the AIDS virus (HIV). If they get the AIDS virus again, from another person, it can make them sicker. AIDS patients are less likely than healthy people to get well after having a cold. Almost all people who get full blown AIDS die within 10 years. Drinking can mess up a person's plans to use a condom. Page 14

15 People who think they might have the AIDS virus (HIV) will probably try to learn more about AIDS. Using a condom the right way is safer than using a diaphragm with spermicide. A blood test is the only way to check for the AIDS virus (HIV). You can get the AIDS virus (HIV) from smoking crack cocaine. Blood that is used for transfusions gets tested for the AIDS virus (HIV). You should use Vaseline with a latex condom. If you get the AIDS virus (HIV), it will show up in a test right away. Imagine someone who has sex with only one person. They still need to use a condom to protect themselves against AIDS. Page 15

16 Someone who knows all about AIDS might have unsafe sex anyway. It is just as risky to have unsafe sex with a person who has full blown AIDS as with someone who just has the AIDS virus (HIV). There is the same amount of the AIDS virus (HIV) in blood as there is in saliva. Hot water will clean the AIDS virus (HIV) from drug needles. Page 16
