Abstract

Gonorrhoea (GO) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in Indonesia. Many sources of information are influencing knowledge of GO among the general population. This cross-sectional study aimed to analyze the association between sources of information and knowledge about GO in Indonesia. The data were taken from the Demographic Health Survey (DHS) 2018 in Indonesia. Based on a total sampling procedure, 86.257 respondents were identified. The dependent variable was knowledge, and the independent variables were sources of information. The data were analyzed by chi-square and binary regression by SPSS Version 23. Descriptive analysis revealed that the most common source of information was friends (14.8. Chi-square analysis demonstrated that all sources of information were associated with knowledge of GO. Binary regression found that all sources of information had a statistically significant correlation, except for radio. Among them, teachers had the strongest correlation with knowledge of GO (p=<0.01, aOR=9, CI 95%=7.89-10.27). Overall, all sources of information assessed in this study were associated with knowledge of Gonorrhoea in Indonesia, except radio. The most commonly used media to obtain knowledge were teachers, colleagues, and books.
