2018 Findings report: Canadians’ Awareness, Knowledge and Attitudes Related to STBBI

In 2018, the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control (CCDIC) commissioned EKOS Research Associates Inc. to conduct a survey asking Canadians questions about their awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI).

The 2018 survey builds on similar surveys conducted for the Public Health Agency of Canada in 2003, 2006, and 2012 and now includes a broader array of questions related to STBBI than in previous years. A variety of external stakeholders and experts were consulted in the development of the survey questions. The survey included questions on STBBI related knowledge, risk behaviors, testing and stigma.

Canadians’ awareness, knowledge and attitudes related to sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections : 2018 findings report is now posted on the Library and Archives Canada website for your reference.
