Transitions to Adulthood in the Context of AIDS in South Africa:
Report of Wave I
A prospective study of reproductive behavior and sexual health of
adolescents in South Africa as well as their education and employment
experiences, family and environmental conditions, and other factors
in their lives that may influence their sexual behavior and choices.
The Transitions study is designed to contribute to our understanding
of how the national Life Skills Programme works and its effectiveness
in changing the behavior of students. The final goal of this study is
to contribute to designing and refining policies and programs that
will improve opportunities and capacities of adolescents and may con-
tribute to changing behaviors and choices. This study is conducted by
the School of Development Studies at the University of Natal, Durban;
the Horizons Program; the Policy Research Division of the Population
Council; Focus on Young Adults; and MEASURE/Evaluation Project of Tu-
lane University in New Orleans. Full Report (available in pdf only):
