This paper aims to better understand the role of media in the understanding of HIV in Nepal. This paper uses a compiled probit regression to understand the effect media such as newspapers, radio, and television plays upon the six factors relating to HIV attitudes and awareness on how it spreads This is done separately for men and women. This study uses the DHS data from 2011 for Nepal. Access to media has an effect of between 1% and 32% on HIV related knowledge.
