Malawi BRIDGE I and II

BRIDGE was designed to energize change in the way Malawians think and speak about HIV/AIDS and more importantly, in how they act.

BRIDGE is an acronym for:

  • Belief in a better future (hope)
  • Risk is shared by everyone (personalized risk)
  • I can STOP AIDS (personal responsibility, action, self-efficacy)
  • Discussion about HIV/AIDS (openness, destigmatization)
  • Gender equity (girls’ empowerment and changed men’s behavior)
  • Emphasizing the positive (action orientation, community assets, positive role modeling)

The project's objectives were:

  • Increase the median age at first sex
  • Decrease unmarried youth 15-24 having sex in last 12 months
  • Decrease number of men reporting more than one sexual partner during the last 12 months
  • Increase condom use by unmarried youth
  • Increase condom use by adults with non-regular partner
