Integrating Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Programming Into Vocational Education and Training in Zanzibar: AYA's Advocacy for Policy Formation and Support for Pilot Implementation

This case study describes PATH's work in Zanzibar with the African Youth Alliance (AYA). AYA played a crucial role in ensuring that adolescent sexual and reproductive health concerns be included in the government?s national vocational education and training (VET) policy.

In doing so, AYA staff built local capacity and set the stage for scaling-up and institutionalizing youth-focused policy implementation, to ultimately ensure a broad, positive, and sustainable impact on the lives of Zanzibari youth.

Needs Assessment Report on Mobility and Cross-Border HIV/AIDS Transmission in Lang Son and Lao Cai, Vietnam

HIV/AIDS and its cross-border transmission in the Mekong region is a growing problem. In response to this problem, PATH, supported by the United States Department of State, implemented the project entitled "Catalyzing Cross-Border HIV/AIDS Prevention in the Southern China Border Region." The project aimed to attract the attention of different stakeholders on both sides of the border to develop The Action Plan to deal with this epidemic. There was a lack of clear understanding of local situations to develop a comprehensive action plan that was locally and culturally appropriate, feasible, and effective. Three cross-border sites, therefore, were selected to conduct the needs assessment: Vietnam, China, and Myanmar. This report presents the findings from Lao Cai and Lang Son provinces in Vietnam.
