Data from Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) 2017 show the increase on the knowledge of prevention for HIV/AIDS among Women (49%) and married Men (55%). However, the factors that influence the increase of knowledge in the community, especially among eligible women (EW) are still unknown. On the other side, to increase the number of HIV voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) requires a good knowledge from community, so it is important to identify what factors that are related to HIV/AIDS knowledge. Therefore, this study aims to determine the factors associated with HIV/AIDS knowledge among EW.
This is a cross-sectional study using secondary data from IDHS 2017 (data couples record). Data were analysed using the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). This study analyses the relationship between predisposing, enabling and reinforcing factors with the HIV/AIDS knowledge of EW.
The results show that more than 75% of 8.838 EW had less knowledge about HIV/AIDS. There are 73.1% of respondents who have mobile phones, but only 4.9% of respondent access information about HIV / AIDS via the internet. In addition, there are 32.2% of respondents who have an elementary school education level or have no education attainment. From the results of PLS-SEM analysis, it is known that the education level and wealth index of EW are predisposing factors that influence EW’s HIV/AIDS knowledge (p-value = 0,000). The frequency of reading the newspaper and the possession of mobile phone are the enabling factors that influence EW’s HIV/AIDS knowledge (p-value = 0.025). Meanwhile, the factors of health workers and community meetings are the reinforcing factors related to EW’s HIV/AIDS. Therefore, health promotion is needed to increase the number of women in continuing education, completing secondary education to higher education, and the innovation to use information technology to disseminate information about women's reproductive health to the community.

Mechanical developments have encouraged the financial segment to open efficient conveyance channels. Computerized banking is the quickest developing channel of banking therefore few individuals are strolling into bank offices nowadays. Banks presently require waiting applicable by taking into account the necessities and desires for the clients and to the innovation progressions. By offering better types of assistance and items clients can use. Banks depend on a social occasion, handling, dissecting, and giving data to get together the requirements of clients. Given the noteworthiness of data in banking, banks were among the most punctual adopters of robotized data handling innovation.
The enthusiasm behind this examination is to look at the variables which influence the computerized financial acknowledgment of clients in Indian banks by utilizing the adjusted unified hypothesis of acknowledgment and utilization of innovation (UTAUT) model. The presentation hope, encouraging conditions, exertion hope, saw worth, propensity, and epicurean inspiration are taken as autonomous factors. Essentially, the aim to receive Internet banking is taken as the middle person, and real use is utilized as the needy variable.

There are many clinical evidences that hyperuricemia is a risk factor for the development of peripheral carotid and coronary vascular diseases. However, the mechanism of elevated uric acid concentration in biological systems is not yet clear. In the present work Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy was used to evaluate the mechanism of calcification and plaque formation in carotid arteries in hyperuricaemic patients. Comparison between the spectra of carotid arteries from patients with elevated uric acid values and spectra obtained from patients with normal uric acid values showed structural changes of the characteristic spectral bands in the region 4000-500 cm-1. These changes were related with changes in the concentration of the serum uric acid and the clinical history of the patients. The intensity decrease of the infrared bands in the region 1650-1500 cm-1 was associated with the decrease of the apolipoprotein ratio, ApoI/ApoII, which corresponds to HDL (High Density Lipoproteins) and the regulation of the LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins), which are related to oxidation stress. The infrared band at 1467 cm-1 indicated the presence of urea components as a result of the metabolic pathway. The shape and the intensity of the bands between 1250-900 cm-1 depend on the glycation-end products of the diseases. SEM-EDX chemical analysis showed fibril formation and molybdenum release in hyperuricaemic patients.
