Abstract

"Despite a current low HIV prevalence, there are concerns that Sri Lanka could face an impending HIV/AIDS epidemic in the future. As in other countries, the military is considered a vulnerable group in terms of HIV/AIDS. The primary objectives of this study were to assess the level of knowledge of HIV/AIDS in the Sri Lankan military and the extent to which personnel were engaged in risky sexual behaviours."
