YouthLens issues 19-21
Family Health International is pleased to announce:
New YouthLens Issues, the four-page research brief series that synthesizes information on critical topics related to youth reproductive health and HIV prevention, are available at http://www.fhi.org/en/Youth/YouthNet/Publications/YouthLens+English.htm
No. 19. Community Involvement in Youth Reproductive Health and HIV Prevention <http://www.fhi.org/NR/rdonlyres/eich24skeeqa3cqbx6bv7y4n6cihowu2iu6fisi4i5krag36bzz5rl47qtwfr4om37vex4wot7avmn/YL19e1.pdf> . (PDF, 183 KB) Youth projects are increasingly involving community members in designing, shaping, and implementing projects. Research findings are promising, but more program experience and research are needed to understand the impact such efforts have.
No. 20. School-Based Reproductive Health and HIV Education Programs ? An Effective Intervention <http://www.fhi.org/NR/rdonlyres/eigijwd5fk77pulmn347njeecnlxnh6yuxeofplsggsmrvfqwzclu3woaiki64h6o7akxuxysyggso/YL20e.pdf> . (PDF, 181 KB) A review of evaluated programs shows that well-designed programs work, but implementation issues such as teacher training and cultural sensitivities remain challenging.
No. 21. Integrating Reproductive Health and HIV Services for Youth <http://www.fhi.org/NR/rdonlyres/edctrxzbyonja26cidv7e4losmwuihc5gnuizjkeitzdus6srsyqwvswav4zb7fduhie7fykeue6zc/YL21e1.pdf> . (PDF, 185 KB) Research identifies the need for more attention to pregnancy prevention in a variety of settings, but delivery models need further testing.
For printed copies of any of these, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. YouthLens began as part of the YouthNet program (2001-06), led by Family Health International (FHI). Now, FHI is continuing to publish YouthLens on behalf of the Interagency Youth Working Group, or IYWG. The IYWG is a network of nongovernmental agencies, donors, and cooperating agencies supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development to improve reproductive health and prevent HIV/AIDS among young people ages 10-24. For more information, a new IYWG Web site will be live in several months. Watch for an announcement.
