This poster presents research on sex in older ages in Malawi. It offers data that indicate sexual desire & activity do not decline in a linear pattern, and highlights sexual behaviours and understandings that challenge the relevance of dominant HIV & STI prevention messages in Malawi. The poster presents a set of complex competing discourses that highlight the importance of qualitative approaches to the collection of data on sexual behaviour. It won the annual British Society for Population Studies Conference Poster Prize in 2011, judged by Professor Ken Hill and Professor John Hobcraft.
