This project translates and evaluates the Partner Project, a behavioral intervention designed to reduce risk of HIV/STD transmission and re-infection among Zambian HIV sero-concordant (positive) and discordant men and women. The study recruits 240 HIV+ seroconcordant and serodiscordant couples from Community Health Clinics (CHCs) in Lusaka, Zambia, and data are collected on the efficacy of the program's sexual risk behavior reduction.
