One important purpose of this project is to develop research-based, culture- and gender-sensitive, sustainable, community-based interventions to promote sexual and reproductive health among adolescents aged 12 to 14 years in southern and eastern Africa. The aim of the interventions for these studies is that the adolescents use condoms correctly and consistently, postpone sexual debut, or reduce the number of sexual partners. Two comprehensive interventions are developed and implemented in Dar es Salaam and Cape Town. In two sites, Kampala and Mankweng, the interventions will be more focussed.

All interventions will be community-based and use schools as their gateway to delivery. In addition to this, each site will pay attention to one particular theme.
