1. Introduction


Thank you for agreeing to participate in this study. The purpose of this survey is to seek your thoughts about the use of a vaginal cream, foam or gel that can be used during sexual intercourse to prevent HIV infection; specifically, how this cream, gel, foam should feel, look and be applied in order for women to decide to use it.

In order to acquire a full understanding about women who will use the product, questions about your sexual practice history as well as your sexual disease history will be asked in this survey. It is desired that you answer as many questions as possible, but please know that you can refuse to answer any questions you are uncomfortable with.

Your name will not be asked during this interview and your signed consent form will not be attached to this survey. The answers will only be used to determine if the majority of women or men in this community would be willing to use it.

I would like to thank you in advance for your willingness to share your thoughts with me.

You may begin.
