This programme is included in the Source Book of HIV/AIDS Prevention Program that presents 13 cases studies of good and promising practices of HIV/AIDS prevention programs in Sub-Saharan Africa. The AMREF, LSHTM and NIMR, initiated a program in 62 primary schools and 18 health facilities in Mwanza region in Tanzania in January 1999. Its main objective was to improve reproductive health knowledge among 12-19 year olds and decrease the rate of STI's and HIV infection as well as the number of unwanted pregnancies. To do this, teacher-led peer educators use informal and participatory techniques to teach young people about reproductive health.
