2012 PRO Men Focus Groups Identify common themes Gaps in knowledge Gaps in services Engaging patients Developed relationships for filming ++ Provider thought leader interviews PRO-Men Focus Groups: reproductive health knowledge, attitudes & desires How it is that you can tell your partners that you are HIV positive? And then make it possible so if you are in a relationship with a woman? And let her know I do want to be with you. How it is that you tell people?
I fear rejection the most. I would like a support group. Because all the men know how to get babies. And people with HIV know how to abstain from having sex. But if you have sex with a woman who doesnt have HIV and try to have a baby? We want information on what to do and how to do it. Because I still dont know how to do it.
