Overall, all high school students in the four countries—Fiji, Guyana, Vanuatu, and Antigua and Barbuda—had moderate HIV/AIDS knowledge. Nevertheless, in relation to individual countries, Fiji and Vanuatu in the South Pacific showed moderate HIV/AIDS knowledge, while Guyana, and Antigua and Barbuda on the Atlantic side presented high HIV/AIDS knowledge. The findings in this chapter also showed that the relation of HIV/AIDS knowledge with socio-demographic variables (gender, age, ethnic groups, religious groups, SES) was statistically significant (p = <0.05).
