This study investigates the efficacy of group counselling, based upon a unified theory, as a strategy for changing high-risk sexual behaviour in men.
Given the complexity of the behaviour, there was evident merit in using a synergetic methodology.
A randomized control design with follow-up was used, evaluated by quantitative and qualitative assessment.
The results show that the group counselling changed the behaviour of the men.
There was a threefold reduction in re-infection rates and an increase in the number of times condoms were used in high-risk situations in the counselled group as opposed to the controls.
