  • Description:
    With a HIV prevalence of 3.7%, Côte d'Ivoire is one of the most affected countries by the HIV epidemics in West Africa (DHS-CI 2012). A study conducted in 2013 by UNFPA and the Ministry of Education revealed that 22% of pregnancies were recorded in primary schools. Teenage pregnancy is often a factor reducing girls’ enrollment in Côte d'Ivoire.

    The Ivorian Government is committed in this respect to improve students' knowledge about HIV/AIDS and reproductive health. Thus, the Ministry of Education has been implementing for a decade, a prevention program based on Life Skills, and funded by CDC/PEPFAR. At the end of these years of implementation, this program needs to be evaluated.

    The aim of this study is to demonstrate the impact of the Life skills program for HIV/AIDS, STI, gender-based violence, and school-related pregnancies control in Côte d’Ivoire.

    The successful evaluation of the Life Skills Programme for STI / HIV / AIDS prevention in schools in Côte d'Ivoire conducted in 2015 was the result of an excellent technical collaboration between the departments of the Ministry of National Education (MEN/PEPFAR, DPFC, DMOSS, DPES), FHI 360 and CDC/PEPFAR.
