Description: Sub-Saharan Africa bears the highest burden of HIV worldwide. Youth aged 15 to 24 are a unique and vulnerable group, at high risk of acquiring
HIV/STI’s. Girls face the additional danger of early/unwanted pregnancy. In rural Zambia there is a paucity of secular sexual and reproductive health preventive interventions targeting youth. We performed an evaluation of a youth intervention program operated by Bumi Bwesu Youth Centre (BBYC), a community based centre located in rural Zambia. BBYC provides workshops in sexual and reproductive health, performs HIV voluntary counselling and testing,
and distributes condoms free of charge.
