Effect of a Faithfulness-Focused Curriculum on HIV-Positive Couples From Four Regions in Ethiopia
As the evidence increasingly reveals that much of the heterosexual HIV transmission in southern and east Africa takes place within marriage or cohabitation, there is growing recognition of the need for culturally sensitive, evidence-based HIV prevention programs that address the needs of couples in long-term relationships. Currently, “positive health, dignity, and prevention” (PHDP) models focus primarily on the individual. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) aims to contribute to the evidence base for couples-centered PHDP programming by evaluating a recently modified version of The Faithful House curriculum, which was tailored to focus on strengthening the relationships of couples living with HIV.
