Dissemination of research findings to research participants living with HIV in rural Uganda: challenges and rewards. Sharing research findings with participants living with HIV enrolled in observational research in rural sub-Saharan Africa presents significant challenges with respect to literacy, language, logistics, and confidentiality. Preparation of findings into the local language improved communication between investigators and staff. Oral dissemination to 466 participants during a meeting modeled after a traditional wedding event was enthusiastically received by participants, was a rewarding experience for the research team, and identified new areas for investigation.
