Authors(2) :-Md. Behzad Noor, Rubaiyat Shaimom Chowdhury

This study introduces to identify the effects of various explanatory variables to the knowledge and consciousness about the HIV/AIDS applying one of the popular statistical analysis called Logistic Regression. Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS, 2007) has been used as the main sources of data. It has been reflected that the age category of 31-40 and 41-50 are 1.36 and 2.56 times more habituated to use condom than the reference category. So, it is the age group of <20 years of age who are more exposed to the risk of getting the HIV/AIDS than the other categories as they are less likely to use condom as the preventive measure. It is amplified that the respondents who responded as they used to watch TV at a regular basis are 3.69 times more conscious about the prevalence procedure of HIV/AIDS than those who don’t have the habit of watching TV. Urban people are more aware in terms of having more habit of using condom for keeping themselves way from HIV/AIDS that of the counter part of the respondents who belong to some rural place (0.809 times more likely to use condom than the reference category).
