The brief for this report was to produce case studies of behaviour change for HIV risk from Oxfam-partnered non-governmental organisations from the Limpopo province, in the 'far north' of South Africa. The research process aimed at locating behaviour change in social science theory and developing case studies of four organisations with a focus on the following issues: The nature of behaviour change used in the organisations' programmes, identifying where, when, how and with whom behaviour change strategies are used, development of behaviour change programmes in these organisations, examples from the organisations' work of effective and less effective strategies for behaviour change in an HIV context, lessons learned from the development of behaviour change programmes.
