Underlying factors in female sexual partner instability in Kampala.
Health Transit Rev. 1997; 7 Suppl:83-8.HT

Abstract

Divorced or separated persons are more likely to be infected with HIV than those in marital unions: sexual partner instability appears to have significant implications in STD/HIV transmission. While this appears empirically true, most current STD/HIV preventive strategies do not seem to address partner instability as an important underlying factor in STD/HIV transmission and control. This paper describes reasons why young females may be motivated to change sexual partners or have more than one sexual partner. The problems appear to be dissatisfaction due to infidelity of the male partner, fear of getting STD from current partner, drunken or unattractive male partner, economic problems, lack of leisure time together, male partner's children with other women, and male partner's relatives' influence. STD/AIDS Control Programs should note that dissatisfaction with partner may be an underlying factor in HIV transmission.
