Evaluation of the Youth Aware Project in Fortaleza (CE) and Porto Alegre (RS)

Idealized by UNICEF, the Youth Aware Program (YA) is an innovative strategy for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases among young people, making testing facilities accessible and promoting peer counselling. Plan evaluated the pilot of this successful initiative on the eve of its expansion, interviewing public managers and health workers and talking to young people in sensitive contexts. We also gathered extensive documentation of similar programs around the world to determine the relative effectiveness of YA.
