[afro-nets] New resources on community involvement in youth RH and HIV prevention

New resources on community involvement in youth RH and HIV prevention


YouthNet is pleased to announce the publication of three new youth community 
involvement resources, available at:

1) Engaging Communities in Youth Reproductive Health and HIV Projects: A Guide 
to Participatory Assessments
This manual discusses how to conduct participatory assessments with youth and 
community members for improved youth reproductive health (RH) and HIV 
prevention, drawing on YouthNet's experience in Namibia, Tanzania, and Ethiopia 
with youth-led projects using these tools. The sections review YouthNet's 
approach to participation, guidelines for training community participants, and 
suggestions for adapting the methods and tools.

2) An Annotated Guide to Technical Resources for Community Involvement in Youth 
Reproductive Health and HIV Prevention Programs This compilation of resources 
is intended for program staff and others who are involved with youth RH/HIV 
prevention and community involvement issues. It includes documents, manuals, 
and toolkits that provide advice, approaches, and tools for involving community 
members, including youth.

3) The Role of Community Involvement in Improving Youth Reproductive Health and 
Preventing HIV among Young People: Report of a Technical Consultation This 
report of a two-day technical consultation summarizes challenges, lessons 
learned from promising projects, knowledge and practice gaps, and 
recommendations for future practice. It suggests guidelines for community 
involvement in youth reproductive health and HIV prevention at all stages of a 
project cycle.

A fourth publication in this group of resources, a review of the literature, 
will be available in September.

For printed copies of the three new documents, please send requests to

YouthNet is a five-year program funded by the U.S. Agency for International 
Development (USAID) to improve reproductive health and prevent HIV among young 
people. The YouthNet team is led by Family Health International (FHI) and
