The estimated prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Mozambique is among the highest in the world. Despite the fact that governmental and non-governmental institutions effort to inform people on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, the disease is increasing.
The aim of this study is to examine local ideas about prevention and the socio-cultural practices that people confront to prevent Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and HIV/AIDS.
Research questions and methods
- How people believe that they get HIV/AIDS
- How they prevent themselves against the affliction
- How they understand HIV/AIDS campaigns
The research method is anthropological based on participant observation, informal conversation, and focus groups.
