Developing a Comprehensive Couples-Based Intervention in South Africa

This project conducted in-depth qualitative interviews with couples (n=20) key informants (n=12), and focus groups (n=4) regarding the feasibility and acceptability of a comprehensive couples-based intervention. Key issues were explored to determine potential interest for intervention content. The research is based at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital and the Perinatal HIV Research Unit at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The primary aims of the project were to:

  • Determine the ideal components of an integrated package delivering comprehensive HIV and reproductive health services to heterosexual couples in Soweto, South Africa.
  • Explore the feasibility and acceptability of such a program via in-depth interviews with potential target audience members and key informants.
