Abstract

Social scientists are constantly trying to find new and pioneering ways to change sexual behaviour in the unrelenting battle against HIV. One proven method is to increase the uptake of voluntary counselling and testing (VCT). This is what Project Accept will try to achieve, writes Heidi van Rooyen, Admire Chirowodza, Sindisiwe Sikotoyi, Phillip Joseph and Linda Richter.
