- This PA calls for basic social and behavioral science studies on the determinants of the sexual behavior of adult heterosexual men. Adult men who have sex with women play a major role in HIV transmission.
- Improved information on their behaviors can suggest ways to increase men's active participation in preventing the spread of HIV infection and provide program designers with information to improve interventions and prevention strategies. Currently, there are serious shortcomings in this field because of inadequate knowledge concerning heterosexual men's perspectives.
