This research aimed to explore why the Imbizo Men's Health Project is successful in encouraging men to participate in an HIV focused intervention by exploring what the respondents perceived to be the essential elements required for the constructive involvement of men in health related HIV prevention programmes. It used the qualitative research method of six focus group discussions to gather data. The study population was participants from the Imbizo Men's Health Project. A purposive sample of 40 men aged 18- 35 years old living in Soweto were selected from this study population. The content of the focus group discussions was analysed to identify recurring themes and perceptions, and the key suggestions made by the respondents.
