Perspectives of PLHIV on HIV Prevention

Publication Date: 
11/19/2012

The Perspectives of PLHIV on HIV Prevention research reports reflect findings from a C-Change multi-site, three-country study to strengthen the response and inform SBCC interventions related to Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention (PHDP). Findings from Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Uganda address the perspectives, experiences, and practices of PLHIV related to HIV prevention and PHDP; the availability of relevant activities and services at community levels; and the extent to which these meet the needs of PLHIV. The study employed a mixed-method approach: qualitative focus group discussions and in-depth interviews, a quantitative survey, and a survey of organizations that provide support and services for PLHIV.


 

PHDP Ethiopia StudyThe study in Ethiopia was conducted from January through March 2012 in four regions of Ethiopia: Amhara, Oromia, Gambela, and Addis Ababa City Administration. The study has qualitative and quantitative components: 20 focus group discussions (FGDs) with PLHIV and in‐depth interviews (IDIs) with 21 PLHIV and 18 stakeholders. The study’s quantitative data components comprised a survey of 392 PLHIV and a modified situation analysis of 37 community‐ and facility‐based organizations providing HIV services in study sites.

PHDP Mozambique StudyQuantitative and qualitative methods were used to collect data in three regions in Mozambique with varied HIV prevalence: Maputo City, Sofala Province, and Manica Province. A total of 16 focus group discussions (FGDs) and 27 in‐depth interviews (IDIs) were conducted with PLHIV and stakeholders, along with a quantitative survey among 218 PLHIV and a survey among 20 organizations and facilities that provide services and support for PLHIV. These included community‐based organizations, government health facilities, and private‐sector health facilities managed by non‐governmental and faith‐based organizations. This report is available in English and Portuguese.

PHDP Uganda study

In Uganda, the PHDP study was conducted in four districts: Kitgum (Northern Region), Mbale (Eastern Region), Rakai (Central Region), and Kasese (Western Region). The study employed a mixed‐method approach, reaching 216 individuals with qualitative focus group discussions (FGDs) and in‐depth interviews (IDIs), 252 PLHIV with a quantitative survey, and a survey of 22 organizations that provide support and services for PLHIV including health facilities and governmental services, nongovernmental, and faith‐ and community‐based organizations.

PHDP Three-Country StudyThis report provides insights and points out similarities and differences among the  findings of the studies conducted in three countries (Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Uganda) in 2010 and 2011.  The studies followed a multi‐method, multi‐component design including qualitative and quantitative approaches. A total of 862 PLHIV participated in a survey; 348 PLHIV and non‐PLHIV participated in focus group discussions (FGDs) or in‐depth interviews (IDIs); and representatives of 79 service provider organizations provided their input as part of a situational assessment.

Presentation on PHDP study

A PowerPoint presentation for the C-Change end-of-project event in September 2012 described the perspectives of people living with HIV (PLHIV) on HIV prevention. Qualitative and qualitative methods were used to conduct research in Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Uganda. The results have implications for policy and programming related to Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention (PHDP) for PLHIV in eastern and southern Africa.
