The overall goal for this proposed project is to conduct a pilot stud)> of a theory, school and community-based, HIV prevention programme for in and out of school adolescents and youths in Harare. The intervention will use a Reducing the Risk approach as well as incorporate a peer diffusion model into school interventions. It is expected that the proposed project will positively impact on adolescents and teenagers at risk for contracting HIV in Zimbabwe and will produce benefits that continue long after the project is concluded. The project will also empower teachers and health educators with the necessary information and training to successfully implement HIV school and community-based behavioral intervention studies in Zimbabwe that can continue long after the proposed project has concluded. This will be achieved through training, seminars, and on-going workshops for professionals and students during the entire research process.
