Strengthening capacity to prevent HIV among adolescent girls and young women: Supporting DREAMS programming
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.
Project SOAR provided technical assistance to DREAMS implementing partners (IPs) in five countries to design girl-centered programming and to improve their program coverage. Learn about the evidence-informed concepts, tools, and tactics that were the focus of SOAR’s technical assistance and the lessons learned in fostering innovation among DREAMS IPs.
