As a part of Ph.D. dissertation, a study was conducted on “Sexual behaviour, Disclosure and Behaviour change of HIV infected men on ART”. This explorative study was conducted in 3 Phases using non random purposive sampling method. In Phase 1, the counsellor's perception of the MLHIV's sexual practices was explored with 85 counsellors. In Phase 2, 152 men on ART were interviewed in purposive non random manner. The findings from both these Phases were triangulated in the focus group discussion conducted with the spouses of MLHIV in Phase3. The goal of the study is therefore not to generalise the findings, but pave way to understand the experiences and practices of HIV infected men before HIV and their behaviour change after onset of ART. Based on the study findings, the areas that need counsellor's attention and exploration have been suggested at the end in the 'Counsellor-Counselee road map'.
