This chapter examines the Côte d'Ivoire women's risk perception of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI). The findings reveal the influence of sexual partners and relationship dynamics on risk perception and risk-taking behavior. This chapter suggests that information, education, and communication campaigns should target women in “committed” relationships, where risk behavior is high but risk perception remains low. It proposes that interventions for men should be incorporated into program design and complement programs that target women.

Keywords:   women, Côte d'Ivoire, risk perception, HIV infection, STI, risk-taking behavior
