Community Dialogues as a Method to Discuss and Reduce Multiple Concurrent Partnerships in Lesotho

The study "Community Dialogues as a Method to Discuss and Reduce Multiple Concurrent Partnerships in Lesotho" evaluated C-Change’s community dialogue intervention titled Relationships: Intimacy Without Risk. The study gathered and analyzed the perspectives of participants in five districts in Lesotho. It aimed to assess whether the dialogues had been effective in improving communication on concurrency (or multiple concurrent partnerships) and on cross‐generational and transactional sex, and whether there had been a positive effect—or potential effect—in reducing these HIV risk behaviors. The evaluation also gathered suggestions from participants on how future community dialogue interventions could be improved. A secondary research objective was to explore the role of concurrency in contributing to the spread of HIV and to identify other issues seen as problematic in communities.
