Perceptions of Vaginal Manipulation in the Context of HIV/AIDS Epidemic in Tete - Mozambique

Dr Brigitte M. Bagnol

Hitherto, studies on vaginal practices in Southern Africa, have shown that women frequently are involved in procedures aiming to the so called “dry sex”. This practice has raised important debates around the susceptibility of acquiring ITS and HIV/AIDS. In Mozambique, the ultimate HIV/AIDS prevalence data shows a bleak picture of about 16.5% among sexually active population – with a significantly higher number among women.
