ABSTRACT Pelvic inflammatory disease affects more than one million women worldwide and the rate is highest with teenagers and first time mothers. PID causes over 100,000 women to become infertile each year . The objective of the study was to determine the level of awareness of P.I.D among female students in KIU-WC who are pursuing bachelors of medicine and surgery in the age range of 18-30 years. A cross-sectional study was done and random sampling method and 200 participants were randomly selected and were given standardized questionnaires The results obtained showed there is increased awareness about P.I.D among the students with increasing exposure to medical knowledge i.e 6th year students were well informed about P.I.D than the 2nd year students. It was concluded that government and all health facilities need to improve the awareness of P.I.D. among the population and also improve the availability of S.T.Is treatment.
