The Cape Town sexual behaviour study: Results showcase

We would like to invite you to the Results Showcase for our Sexual Behavior Survey on Friday, 27 March, 2015 from 11am – 3pm at the Blue Hall in Khayelitsha.

Our survey took place in three urban, disadvantaged communities in Cape Town with a high prevalence of HIV. The survey aimed to:

  • Characterize age-disparity in relationships
  • Estimate partner concurrency in the communities
  • Describe other relationship characteristics, which have been noted as risk factors for the transmission and acquisition of HIV.

An address to the audience from the principle investigator and director of SACEMA will commence at 11:30am with a Q&A session to follow. We encourage an open dialogue with ongoing efforts to improve sexual relationship health and reduce HIV infections.

R.S.V.P by no later than Friday, 20 March to maphiri.thabisa05@gmail.com
