    For those we interviewed the knowledge that either they or
    their partner had diagnosed HIV needed to be managed on
    both an individual and collective level. It impacted on how each
    partner saw themselves and also how they perceived the
    future of their relationship. This report begins by exploring
    how participants with diagnosed HIV became aware of their
    HIV status, and how they have tried to come to terms with it,
    before describing their decision making about sharing this
    status with their partner and their means of doing so. The
    thoughts and experiences of participants who had not
    disclosed their status are described. Finally it explores the
    reactions of the HIV negative or untested partners to
    disclosure, its impact on a personal level and how they sought
    to come to terms with this news.
