Abstract:

This Guide aims to assist trainers not only to help participants towards a better understanding of themselves and their sexual partners and towards an appreciation of the vital role that condoms play in maintaining sexual health, but also to address issues of resistance to HIV prevention among couples. The Guide begins with separate sessions for female and male participants and ends with a unique couples’ session. Women and men tend to talk more freely in same sex groups, but can still learn much about the issues relevant to their partners, from the open sharing session. Areas have also been highlighted where it was felt that a different approach was needed to accommodate the specific characteristics of any one group of participants.
