MARCH Outcome Evaluation

differences. On the other hand, the proportion of respondents scoring greater or equal to the median (i.e. perception of high non-differential treatment of PLWHAs) significantly differed by exposure status. The proportion who scored above the median ranged from 24.9% for the non-exposed to 32.1% and 39.4%, respectively, for the moderately-and highly exposed respondents. The multivariate analysis further confirmed the fact that the observed effect of the MARCH on individuals’ perception of non-differential treatment of PLWHAs was not altered after adjusting for age, sex, education and marital status of respondents (Table 9).

Table 8. Median (range) scores and the proportion scoring above the median in relation to attitude towards PLWHAs and perceived non-differential treatment of PLWHAs according to exposure to the MARCH, Addis Ababa, MARCH outcome survey, May-June 2005.
