  8. An assessment of cost, quality and outcomes for five HIV prevention youth peer education programs in Zambia

    Research on the effectiveness of youth peer education programs (YPE) programs is scarce, and the wide variation in programs makes it difficult to generalize research findings. Measuring quality and comparing program effectiveness require the use of standardized instruments. In this study, the authors used standardized evidence-based instruments to compare program inputs, quality, outputs and outcomes for five YPE programs in Zambia. …

  9. Social determinants of sexual and reproductive health: Informing future research and programme implementation

    The relationship between poverty and poor reproductive health is well established. While the last two decades have seen improvements in access to and utilization of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, progress in many countries has been slow and - after decades of investments - disappointing. Social activists and health analysts have highlighted the potential role that persistent inequities in health play in hindering progress towards achieving international and national development goals. …

    The purposes of this report are to: (1) help advocates and policymakers better understand the reproductive health cost estimates currently in circulation; (2) build advocates' and policy-makers' confidence in using estimates that reflect the specific needs they seek to address; and (3) promote more consistent use of the same numbers for the same purposes, particularly among financial requests to policy-makers including donors. Authors aim to accomplish this goal by analyzing and comparing the most frequently cited estimates, and presenting the range of current cost estimates. …
