Following a lengthy civil war and in a context of pervasive poverty, Liberian youth face major challenges in making healthy decisions. Lack of education is a significant factor in determining HIV protective behaviors and family planning (FP) use and intention. HealthyActions, a collaboration between PSI Liberia and EDC’s Advancing Youth Project (AYP), is funded by USAID and launched in October 2012. This presentation discusses lessons learned around the topic of expanding access to reproductive health services to low literacy youth in Liberia.
This presentation was created for 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia.
