Challenge

With an over-burdened health system, adolescents, especially girls and young women, in sub-Saharan Africa continue to be vulnerable, both socially and economically, to HIV infection. Adolescents face stigma, discrimination, poor knowledge, lower socioeconomic status, lack of social support, gender-biased social and cultural norms. Adolescent girls are more likely to be exposed to age-disparate sexual situations, gender inequality and gender-based/intimate partner violence.

Solution

The Adolescent Health Program creates positive community and school based environments to reinforce healthy behaviors, increase access to health services and improve entrepreneurial and educational skills.

Long-Term Impact

m2m will reduce HIV incidence and HIV-related mortality and morbidity among adolescent girls and young women. m2m will work to reinforce access and quality of prevention and care service through Mentor Mothers and Youth Peer Educators by supporting pregnant HIV-positive and negative adolescents to access services. We will target youth in schools, communities and youth clubs, and reinforce healthier behaviours.
