This project focuses specifically on the matter of the challenges existing within the element of mediating information and implementing behavioural change concerning HIV/AIDS prevention for the two organizations Population Services International (PSI) and Restless Development. The main area of study is based on data collected within Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, due to the geographical location of the interviews. It includes a focus group interview with a group of local men, and multiple interviews with people from organizations that deal with sexual health education. Thus the project take advantage of the qualitative research method in order to fully illuminate and analyse the subject at hand. Through the collected data the study finds several key factors which all presents a certain set of challenges toward the organizations. Hence the study concludes that because of the element of stigma, it becomes difficult to implement behavioural change in the population when mediating information in regards to the prevention of HIV/AIDS.
