Reducing HIV risk among adolescent girls and young women, and their partners through the DREAMS Partnership in Malawi
Adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in Malawi, like in many African countries, experience much higher rates of HIV infection than their male counterparts. The DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) partnership aims to significantly reduce new HIV infections in AGYW in 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including Malawi. DREAMS is delivering, through local and international implementing partners, a comprehensive package of evidence-based interventions that go beyond the health sector, addressing the structural drivers that fuel AGYW’s HIV risk.
This brief describes how SOAR is building needed evidence to inform decision-making about effective programming to reduce HIV risk among AGYW and their male partners in Malawi.Download Brief
