Challenge

It is estimated that more than half of new HIV infections worldwide occur among young people of 15-24 years and up to a third of people living with HIV/AIDS are 25 years or younger. Young people are more disproportionally affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa.Young people between the ages of 15 and 24 account for about 40% of cases and are a key target group for focused prevention efforts (Mpigi District HIV report shared on bi-annual HIV stakeholders meeting 10 March 2022).

Solution

Activities will target leaders from the National, District to the community level, with advocacy and support for youth programs. The outcome will be an improved policy environment for a youth focus in the implementation of a National &District HIV/AIDS strategy. In addition;activities will support the production of a highquality, mass media behavior change communication program focused on youth and their families. The program will include television, radio, and print media among others

Long-Term Impact

Biomedical approaches, such as male circumcision, treating sexually transmitted infections, treating HIV itself and the effect of harmful gender stereo-types, stigma and discrimination on people at high risk and on people already infected will be employed.
