Youth

In Africa and South Asia more than 3 billion people live with little access to intensive care. Their best hope is through knowledge and information, allowing communities to slow the epidemic, protect those most vulnerable, and continue accessing treatment for other deadly illnesses.

ISHI  was a behavior change communication campaign directed to Tanzanian youth to help them understand the risks associated with HIV/AIDS and to help them learn ways to protect themselves. The overall campaign objective was to increase the number of young men and women who believe they are at personal risk of contracting HIV/AIDS and to motivate them to adopt protective behaviors.  The key message for ISHI phase II was  “You cannot tell by knowing."

In 1999 Femina Hip was set up as a civil society organization in Tanzania to foster healthy lifestyles by educating and connecting young people around sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as HIV/AIDS prevention at a precarious time of the epidemic.

The SKILLZ COVID-19 RESPONSE curriculum was developed in March 2020 to help address the COVID-19 pandemic. Grassroot Soccer (grassrootsoccer.org) and its team of curriculum advisors rapidly designed this sport-based tool as a way for coaches, educators, and parents to easily facilitate fun, simple, and effective sessions with young people (ages 9+).
