DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe) is a public-private partnership to reduce rates of HIV among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in the highest HIV burden countries. The Population Council assessed activities taking place under DREAMS to understand whether they improved HIV-related outcomes and, if so, how. The implementation science studies explored whether the beneficiaries were reached and retained in services, how different components of the DREAMS package were delivered to the target groups, and ultimately whether HIV risk among adolescent girls and young women and their male partners was reduced.
