The Partners and Prevention Study is a multi-center international trail to measure the efficacy of twice daily acyclovir suppressive therapy in preventing HIV transmission among heterosexual HIV-discordant couples, in which the HIV-infected partner is HSV-2 seropositive and has a CD4 cell count of at least 250 cells/mm3. This project will take place in Moshi, Tanzania.
