Adolescent Girls Empowerment Program (AGEP): Health and Life Skills Curriculum

Publish Year
Population Council, Zambia YWCA

Many adolescents and young women in Zambia are faced with economic and social barriers, lack of access to health care, and gender-based violence which increase their risk for unwanted pregnancy, HIV, and school drop outs. The AGEP curriculum was developed to teach girls to build strong support networks, increase knowledge around reproductive health, and develop their decision-making and negotiation skills. This low-resource manual provides facilitation materials on many subjects, including Reproductive Health (pgs. 55-106) and HIV, AIDS, and STIs (pgs. 174-210).
