This document summarizes the process that resulted in the design and validation of two resources: Livelihood Options for Girls: A Guide for Program Managers and Identifying Appropriate Livelihood Options for Adolescent Girls: A Program Design Tool, developed by Health Policy Initiative, Task Order 1. Both resources are intended for use by program managers of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and are designed to address PEPFAR legislation that supports "Increasing women's access to income and productive resources". Activities outlined in the guide and tool include linking care and support programs to income generation activities and livelihood programs for women and adolescent girls; supporting initiatives to ensure that children and adolescents, especially girls, stay in school and are trained in vocational skills; and working with governments to develop policies that increase women's access to economic resources.
