HIV Discordant Couples: An Exploratory Study Insights from South Africa, Tanzania and the Ukraine
This document summarizes the findings of an exploratory study on coping strategies and life choices of couples in South Africa, Tanzania, and the Ukraine living in long-term serodiscordant relationships (i.e., couples in which one partner is HIV-positive and the other partner HIV-negative) undertaken by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), and funded by World Health Organization (WHO). GNP+ worked collaboratively with South African researchers at the Centre for Health Policy at the University of the Witwatersrand and the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to gather information on serodiscordant couples, with the aim of learning more about the strategies and choices used by serodiscordant couples to sustain their relationships, make sexual and reproductive choices, maintain their health, and avoid HIV transmission.
