In this study of low-income communities residents in Chennai, India, our aim was to understand the composition of personal communication networks, the nature of information related to sex and sexual health that is exchanged in these networks and the value of communication among members of these networks. Our results indicate that information about sex and sexual health is exchanged within and between four groups: married women, married men, unmarried men and unmarried women.
We conducted in-depth open-ended interviews using a structured interview guide with 43 individuals. Communication leads to an expansion of sexual networks among unmarried men and treatment seeking behaviour for STDs in all groups.
