Abstract: The aim of this investigation was to examine A Relationship Between Logical Reasoning and HIV/AIDS Knowledge and Awareness among Moi University Students in Eldoret, Kenya. The sample comprised 102 students consisting 51 females and 51 males with mean age of 23 years a standard deviation 5. Two instruments were administered to them to assess their logical reasoning and HIV/AIDS knowledge and awareness. The participants were split into two groups on basis of their performance on a logical reasoning comprising ten multiple questions. Those who scored 3 and above were considered to have done well; whereas those that scored below 3 were considered not have performed that well. A Pearson Product-Moment Correlation was used for determining the relationship between the two variables. For those who performed well on logical reasoningscoed a correlation of .90; whereas those who performed less well scored correlation of .70. The two correlations were statistically different in favour of those who outperformed the group that did less well. Thus confirming the hypothesis, that education remains the social vaccine in the absence of a cure for HIV/AIDS, which remains the most effective means for combating the enormously dreadful disease in recent human history. It is important therefore, that education be given the highest priority in combating HIV/AIDS; given that it is controllable, manageable and preventable, all of which can be realized through education.
