LEARN Research Report

Young Women Lead, Evidence, Advocate, Research, Network (LEARN): What does PrEP mean for your women? was a two-year DREAMS Innovation Challenge project funded by PEPFAR and managed by JSI Research & Training Institute. LEARN, led by ATHENA and our community partners PIPE and ICWEA aimed to promote an HIV prevention agenda informed by the meaningful participation of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in research that affects their lives. It aimed to support effective roll-out and uptake of PrEP among AGYW in Kenya and Uganda through creating an evidence base to support implementation that is responsive to the needs, rights, priorities and preferences of AGYW in all of their diversity. 

 The LEARN research report includes the findings from a qualitative, participatory peer-led study exploring the values, views and preferences around PrEP with AGYW in Kenya and Uganda

The LEARN research has produced evidence to support effective PrEP roll-out and implementation for AGYW.
