The HIV Prevention for Youth project asks two questions: How is youth vulnerability and risk situated within individual, interpersonal and community dynamics? To what degree can school- and community-based interventions separately, and in combination contribute to reducing youth risk and vulnerability? The project takes a social ecological approach to prevention that places individual risk of acquiring HIV within the context of interpersonal networks, community and broader social and cultural contexts. The project uses an action research model that incorporates into the research process the sharing and translation of knowledge into programmatic and policy actions.
