YouthLens issues online
-----------------------

YouthLens, published by Family Health International as part of its
YouthNet program, is a series of research briefs that summarize the
latest information on key issues regarding reproductive health and
HIV prevention among youth ages 10 to 24. YouthNet is pleased to an-
nounce that four new YouthLens are now available:

Youth-Adult Partnerships Show Promise

Anecdotal evidence suggests that youth involvement can go beyond pro-
gram interventions to include collaborations with adults in policy,
management, and evaluation areas as well.

Condoms and Sexually Active Youth
http://www.fhi.org/en/youth/youthnet/pubs/pubspdf/ylenscondoms.pdf

Condom use among sexually active youth varies widely, due to issues
including risk perception, social support, gender, and knowledge
gaps.

Participatory Learning and Action
http://www.fhi.org/en/youth/youthnet/pubs/pubspdf/ylenspartlearnactn.pdf

The Ethiopian Ministry of Youth, Sports, and Culture used a youth-
based participatory process to develop an HIV/AIDS and sexual health
component in its new program, resulting in a mobilized coalition of
young people committed to the health and future of their country.

Multisectoral Programs Link Intervention Efforts
http://www.fhi.org/en/youth/youthnet/pubs/pubspdf/ylensintefrts.pdf

In Haiti, a coordinated effort addresses health, agriculture, educa-
tion, and income generation needs of young people through a single
project.
