Social and behaviour change communication

Adolescents and young people in eastern and southern Africa (ESA) are highly affected by HIV and AIDS, with an estimated 2.7 million people aged 15 to 24 years living with HIV.  Girls are disproportionately affected - they are more than two-and a half times more likely to be infected with HIV than boys of the same age. Despite these striking statistics, effective HIV prevention programming for this population group has still not achieved what is required, and adolescents and young people are being “left behind”. The current body of evidence available on effective packages tailored for adolescents and young people in ESA remains limited.

In 2015, EHPSA commissioned MannionDaniels to review the role of social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) in combination prevention programmes for adolescents in eastern and southern Africa. The report was compiled from a review of the literature as well as interviews with 48 stakeholders at global, regional, and country levels. More in-depth insights were obtained from informants in the three focus countries of Malawi, South Africa and Tanzania.
