C-Channel 18 - HIV Prevention - from C-Change
C-Channel 18 highlights HIV prevention and SBCC.
* Three articles explore HIV prevention in the context of gender equity and heterosexual relationships.
* Five articles look at HIV and the underserved population of men who have sex with men (MSM).
* One article explores HIV and multiple concurrent partnerships (MCP).
* The final two articles are on malaria prevention during pregnancy.
C-Change used its Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) Learning Package (see
http://c-changeprogram.org/our-approach/capacity-strengthening/sbcc-modules) to conduct a 10-day SBCC training for Southern African AIDS Trust (SAT) in January-February 2010, which further strengthened SAT's organizational and programming capacity in SBCC (see http://www.c-changeprogram.org/).
C-Change also implemented an innovative community dialogue intervention in Lesotho that addresses MCP, a significant driver of HIV (see http://www.c-changeprogram.org/where-we-work/lesotho).
