Impact of HIV communication programmes on selected behaviours amongst young women in South Africa

HIV prevalence in South Africa is among the highest in the world. HIV disproportionately affects women, with an estimate of 21.1% in 20-24 year-olds, and a peak of 32.7% in 25-29 year-olds. HIV communication
programmes (HCPs) are designed to influence knowledge, attitudes, social norms and behaviours that in turn impact on HIV incidence. The objective of this study is to describe the impact of communication on
selected behaviours among women aged 16-29 years old.
