MannionDaniels contracted for critical reviews on HIV prevention in Southern Africa
MannionDaniels has been contracted by Mott MacDonald to undertake two critical reviews for the DFID-funded Evidence for HIV Prevention in Southern Africa Programme.
The reviews focus on HIV prevention for adolescents with the aim of producing two discussion papers that will contribute to and broaden regional debates on issues affecting policy and programming on HIV prevention for adolescents in the Eastern and Southern Africa Region.
The topics of the discussion papers are:
- The future of social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) in an era of combination prevention; and
- The impact and value of a more nuanced and dis-aggregated definition of ‘adolescents’ for HIV prevention programming
The two discussion papers are in the final stages of development. The preliminary findings have been presented at a Technical Forum, hosted by Evidence for HIV Prevention in Africa (EHPSA) in Cape Town in September, with Alex le May, Deputy Fund Director at MannionDaniels as present. Participants included researchers, multi-laterals, donors, civil society organisations and representatives of national ministries of health and education, national AIDS commissions, and regional bodies.
