What works to prevent HIV among adolescent girls and sex workers?
United Nations Population Fund
In 2015, The Director of the Equality Institute, Dr Emma Fulu, was engaged by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to develop evidence briefs to respond to the following question:
To what extent are the types of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) interventions promoted by UNFPA in the East and Southern Africa region effective in preventing HIV and/or in reducing the risk factors for HIV transmission?
The study focused on what type of interventions work to prevent HIV among adolescent girls, and separately what interventions work to prevent HIV among sex workers. The two documents featured below are the result of this work. The briefs will facilitate research uptake and engagement with government officials and donors in the aim of strengthening advocacy efforts and reinvigorating HIV prevention in the East and Southern Africa region.
