As part of the DREAMS Initiative, the Population Council is conducting implementation research in Zambia to build needed evidence to inform decision-making around effective implementation of community-based, girl-centred interventions and to assess their effectiveness in reducing HIV vulnerability among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW)—a population in which AIDS is the leading cause of death in the region. This brief summarizes key findings from a prospective cohort study conducted with AGYW participating in DREAMS programming in an urban site in Lusaka and Ndola.
