Zambia Working To Address HIV/AIDS Among Youth, Especially Women

Writing in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, Jennifer James, founder of Mom Bloggers for Social Good, discusses her travel to Zambia as an International Reporting Project Zambia Fellow, and how the country is addressing HIV/AIDS among the youth population. “The Zambian government is working through community youth groups that are funded in part by USAID, called Safe Love Clubs, that actively encourage an open dialogue about HIV education and prevention,” she notes, adding, “While Zambia is opening up more about HIV/AIDS education and preventative measures to bring the infection rate down women still are not listened to by men” (7/16).
