Overall, I found this to be a well written study but it wasn't clear why you sampled exclusively from a hospital outpatient list if you wanted to explore general population attitudes to HIV. It is also unclear how you sought out 'negative' instances- was this on the basis of the previously conducted questionnaire?
Finally, I would rephrase lines 349-350 in the discussion, as a qualitative study can only provide one with insights into perceptions of prevalence of risk behaviours and not prevalence estimates per se (even if these are broad descriptors like 'high' prevalence).
