Abstract

This analysis assesses the link between partnership status and the probability of having one or more casual or non-regular sexual relationships in the past 12 months, using data from sample surveys conducted in Kampala and Lusaka in 1989/90 under the auspices of the Global Programme on AIDS. Non-regular sexual relationship was found to be much more common among individuals in relatively informal primary partnerships than among married individuals, and also more common among those with multiple primary partners than among those in monogamous unions. /// Cette analyse évalue le lien entre la situation de l'association et la probabilité d'avoir une ou deux relations sexuelles occasionnelles ou irrégulières au cours de 12 derniers mois, à l'aide des données recueillies des échantillons des enquêtes menées à Kampala et à Lusaka en 1989/90, sous les auspices du Programme Global sur le SIDA. Il s'est trouvé que les relations sexuelles irrégulières étaient plus communes parmi les individuels dans les associations primaires à caractère relativement informelles que parmi les individus mariés. Elles sont aussi plus communes parmi ceux qui ont de multiples partenaires que parmi ceux qui ont des liens monogames.
