This project, a sub-project of the PEPFAR-funded DREAMS programme in Zimbabwe, came about to help reduce new HIV infections among adolescents and young girls (ages 14-24) by promoting healthy behaviours among men. The aim of the project is to spread positive messages among men, which can shift their attitudes and misconceptions about sexual and reproductive health and related issues that affect them or their partners.
