“I Know, Do you Know?” Campaign in South Africa

The SAfAIDS “I Know, Do you Know?” Campaign for #EndingAdolescentsAIDS in South Africa is targeted at generating increased debate and discussion on the importance of knowing one’s HIV status as an entry point for HIV prevention, treatment, adherence, care and psycho-social support. The campaign will serve as a platform to mobilize Adolescents to take up HIV testing and treatment, encourage uptake of other combination prevention programmes like Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision and offer Psychosocial support associated with adolescent disclosure as well as provision of family planning services for those who require them.

Changing the River’s Flow - A gender Transformative Programme for Young People (CTRF 4 YP) (2015-2017)

Zimbabwe is mainly a patriarchal society in which boys and girls are taught from early childhood to internalize societal messages about how males and females are expected to behave, who makes decisions, and where power dynamics lie. These behaviors contribute to reinforcing unequal gender roles and responsibilities that culminate into high risk of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Zimbabwe is mainly a patriarchal society in which boys and girls are taught from early childhood to internalize societal messages about how males and females are expected to behave, who makes decisions, and where power dynamics lie. These behaviors contribute to reinforcing unequal gender roles and responsibilities that culminate into high risk of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases. Such norms among young men and boys include early sexual activity, multiple sex partners, gender based violence and sexual dominance that increase vulnerability to contracting and spreading HIV.
