Many young people live in urban informal settlements. These sites face huge health challenges, including HIV and violence, and so it is difficult to intervene there. A structural participatory approach, Stepping Stones and Creating Futures works with young people in such settlements in South Africa to transform gender norms and strengthen livelihoods in order to reduce violence and HIV risk.
This webinar provides:
- an overview of the Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention
- the outcomes of the pilot
- the challenges of implementation in difficult circumstances
How can we strengthen the outcomes of such programmes in the future?
