A Novel Tool to Assess Community Norms and Attitudes to Multiple and Concurrent Sexual Partnering in Rural Zimbabwe: Participatory Attitudinal Ranking

This study used a novel tool to collect data on community norms relating to the acceptability of concurrency in rural Zimbabwe. The findings indicated concurrency is considered more acceptable in specific social contexts, including infertility and lack of a male heir, and that having protected rather than unprotected sex with a concurrent partner does not render concurrency more acceptable.
