Most Ugandans live in rural areas. According to the 2004-05 Uganda HIV/AIDS Sero-Behavioural Survey (UHSBS), only 15 percent of the population age 15-59 live in urban areas; the proportion in Kampala, is 100 percent. About 15 percent of respondents in Central and 12 percent in East Central reported living in urban areas. In the six other regions, less than 10 percent live in urban areas. The least urbanized areas are Western, Northeastern, and Southwest. When asked about ways to reduce their chances of getting HIV/AIDS, 67 percent of respondents reported knowing that consistent condom use and having one faithful, uninfected partner are key prevention methods. More than 80 percent of respondents in the Central, Kampala, and East Central regions know of these methods, compared with only 47 percent in the Northeastern region. More men (72 percent) than women (63 percent) know about these HIV/AIDS prevention methods. Men in Kampala (86 percent) and women in the East Central region (85 percent) were most likely to know these prevention methods. By contrast, men in the North Central region (56 percent) and women in the Northeastern and West Nile regions (38 percent) were least likely to have knowledge of HIV/AIDS prevention methods. - See more at: http://www.popline.org/node/197093#sthash.GLvsTlHP.dpuf
