Chi-square test statistics and logistic regression models were used for analyzing the data. This analysis pertains to 600 ever married women in the reproductive age group (10-49). The finding of the both techniques show that female age at marriage, couple education, occupation, access to health worker, and mass-media exposure have significant (p<0.001, p<0.005) contribution in determining HIV/AIDS knowledge, awareness level. It also reveals that media particularly TV, couples education and visit of family planning health worker play the leading role regarding this issue while others have indirect relationship.
