What are the HIV risk characteristics of out-of-school adolescent girls and young women in Malawi?: Findings from DREAMS implementation science research

Project SOAR, in collaboration with the Center for Reproductive Health at the University of Malawi College of Medicine, is conducting implementation science research to build needed evidence to inform community-based, girl-centered HIV prevention programming in Malawi. DREAMS partners are implementing a core package of interventions to address HIV risk among adolescent girls and young women’s (AGYW)—a population in which AIDS is the leading cause of death in the region—through community-based mechanisms in the highest HIV burden areas. Critical to this process is knowing more about AGYW’s HIV risk profiles. This brief summarizes key findings from a survey conducted between July and September 2017 with 1,672 AGYW.
