Description

As one of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti constantly has one of the highest rates of HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the world. Of the 10.17 million citizens in Haiti, between 120,000 and 600,000 are afflicted with HIV/AIDS. This study is exploring the various factors, whether they are socioeconomic or other categorical variables, that may be able to help predict the probability of an individual testing HIV positive in Haiti.
