MetadataShow full item record
People living with HIV (PLHIV) play a crucial role in reducing the spread of HIV as they are the primary vectors of HIV transmission. Recent HIV-prevention programmes have focused on counselling HIV-positive individuals to reduce their own risk behaviour as a way to limit transmission of the virus (Gerbert, Danley, Herzig, Clanon, Ciccarone, Gilbert & Allerton, 2006; Gilbert, Ciccarone, Gansky, Bangsberg, Clanon, McPhee et al., 2008; Samayoa, Anderson, O’Sullivan, Patricia, Pacheco, Matos et al., 2010). Other HIV-prevention programmes have focused on helping HIV-negative persons avoid infection (Abdool Karim, Sibeko & Baxter, 2010).
