About This Project
Sub-saharan Africa accounts for >70% of the global HIV/AIDS burden (AVERT, 2016). In Nigeria, 1 in 4 new cases are diagnosed in women, particularly adolescent and young adults. The current project aims to understand the extent of health literacy and how literacy can be improved among females. Currently, health literacy/education is not a priority for schools. This intervention will focus primarily on education & female empowerment.
