Positive Deviance for Dual-Method Promotion among Women in Uganda: A Qualitative Study

Include in
Published Research

Regardless of practicing dual-method use or not, women faced perceived barriers against dual-method use, such as partner's objection, distrust, shyness about introducing condoms into marital relationships, and limited access to condoms. However, women practicing dual-method use had higher levels of risk perception about unintended pregnancies and HIV/STIs. They also engaged in unique behaviors, such as influencing their partners' condom use by initiating discussions, educating their partners on sexual risks and condom use, and obtaining condoms by themselves.
