Additional objectives were also to identify facilitators and barriers to uptake and adherence with short term once daily PrEP for HIV prevention among female partners of miners; to assess safety of PrEP use in terms of adverse events requiring discontinuation of PrEP and social harms to evaluate effect of PrEP on sexual behaviors among participants and to assess correlation between self-reported adherence, adherence measured by pill count and drug level.
