Findings from the KAP analysis

  1. 1. Findings from the Knowledge, Attitude, Perception (KAP) Analysis Clare Narrod, on behalf of the team IFPRI: M. Tiongco, R. Scott, and W. Collier CIMMYT: H. De Groote , J. Hellin, S. Kimenju, B. Munyua KARI: C. BettInternational Food Policy Research Institute Uniformed Services University of the Health SciencesInternational Center for the Improvement of Maize ACDI/VOCA/Kenya Maize Development Programand Wheat Kenya Agricultural Research InstituteInternational Crops Research Institute for the Semi- Institut d’Economie RuraleArid Tropics The Eastern Africa Grain CouncilUniversity of Pittsburgh
  2. 2.  Knowledge: the degree of factual understanding of the topic and associated issues. Attitude and perceptions: feelings toward the subject, including judgment of its importance and influence on people’s lives. Practices: current actions taken as a result of the knowledge, attitude and perception toward the issues.
  3. 3.  Evaluate the effectiveness of information campaigns – assist policymakers in customizing educational programs . Flyer from Eastern Kenya
  4. 4.  Knowledge of Attributes of Aflatoxin exposure (i.e. human health symptoms such as stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, etc.). Knowledge of Causes (Moisture) of Aflatoxin exposure (e.g. wetness in piles of harvested maize, poor storage condition, dampness in storage place, improper drying, etc.). Attitude (Reaction) about Aflatoxin safety (i.e. farmers’ attitude towards potential outbreaks in their village). Perception of Risk (i.e. understanding risks of storing wet maize, buying maize from local markets, insect/pest damage, etc.). Actions (Container) (i.e. using storage practices that avoid Aflatoxin such as maintaining humidity and cleanliness in storage).

  8. 8.  Higher education has a positive effect on perception of risk associated with storing wet maize, buying from local markets as well as farmers’ attitude towards potential outbreaks in their village Farm size is not correlated with farmers’ actions to prevent and reduce aflatoxin risks at the farm level using containers. Wealth is positively associated with farmers reaction (attitudes) to aflatoxin in their village and perception of risks associated with storing wet maize, buying maize from local markets, insect/pest damage. In the dry transitional area where the 2004 outbreaks occurred, the effects on the perception of risk of aflatoxin and attitudes to aflatoxin safety is expected. Number of children under 5 had a positive and significant effect on actions to prevent and reduce aflatoxin risks at the farm level.
  9. 9.  Social networks  What is the effect of social network on knowledge of aflatoxin ?  Which networks has the most influence in the disseminating knowledge?  How can networks be useful in turning them to correct actions? Aflatoxin prevalence  Does KAP on aflatoxin influence prevalence levels? Future work -Impact of education/radio campaigns  Randomized controls and see what factors altered KAP indices and aflatoxin levels
