CHAU support efforts that will enhance adoption of safer sexual behaviours and reduction in risky behaviours and practices among the youth and adults through the use of peer educators and other community-based models.
Adoption of Safer Sexual Behaviours and Reduction in Risky Behaviours among the youth and adults requires sustained investments in enhancing behavioural change communication to promote positive health outcomes. This is underpinned by the identified drivers of the HIV epidemic in Uganda which include behavioural, socio-economic and structural factors like gender norms and constructs of masculinity, gender relations, gender-based violence, stigma and discrimination as well as gender inequalities.
CHAU uses community driven responses and strategies to ensure health education and promotion is achieved among its audience segmentation. These strategies are effective and proven to deliver desired behavior change in CHAU’s different projects across board.
