Join Project SOAR for a webinar featuring the latest evidence and insights from implementation science research in Malawi and capacity-strengthening activities with DREAMS implementing partners (IPs) in Botswana, Cote d’Ivoire, Haiti, Namibia, and Rwanda.
The DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) Partnership aims to significantly reduce HIV infections among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). DREAMS is groundbreaking in its commitment to deliver evidence-informed approaches that go beyond the health sector to address structural factors that fuel AGYW’s HIV risk, including poverty, gender inequality, sexual violence, social isolation, and lack of schooling.
Our role in DREAMS is to generate evidence and strengthen local capacity to translate local, real-time information into programming.
In this webinar, SOAR/Population Council researchers will cover:
- What AGYW in Malawi tell us about their vulnerability to HIV.
- How this information is being used to inform programming.
- Lessons learned from strengthening DREAMS implementing partner capacity to improve their ability to reach at-risk, marginalized AGYW who are often—inadvertently—overlooked by conventional HIV prevention efforts.
