SFH Zambia aims to decrease prevalence of HIV in Zambia by undertaking activities such as condom social marketing through behaviour change communications. Tracking surveys serve as tools to inform programming by routinely collecting data from cross-sections of populations at risk for HIV/AIDS and other adverse health outcomes. This survey among Long Distance Drivers (LDDs) aimed to (i) identify and describe segments of LDDs in terms of consistent condom use with non-regular partners, (ii) gain an understanding of knowledge, attitudes and HIV/AIDS risk behaviour among LDDs and (iii) use study data to design a social marketing and behaviour change communication campaign for HIV/AIDS risk reduction among LDDs. The study is integral to the social marketing plan and strategic plan of SFH Zambia. The study was carried out among Long Distance Drivers in selected locations in Zambia. The selected places were: Chipata, Livingtsone, Lusaka and Nchelenge. A take-all sampling approach was used in each of the selected sites over the course of the survey because the numbers enumerated during the mapping exercise were less than the desired sample sizes. All of the truck drivers aged 18 years and above were passing through or found at their places of operation were invited to participate in the survey. The questionnaire covered demographic information, sexual behaviour, condom use, OAM determinants, and exposure to interventions. Four point Likert scales were used to provide a richer measure of OAM determinants. The measures for these variables were constructed based on prior research and were included in the analysis after conducting a reliability and validity check. Logistic regression analysis were performed to identify significant determinants of consistent condom use. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to complete the monitoring table.
