I worked specifically on the program called the Youth Friendly Services/Adolescent Reproductive Health (YFS/ARH) Project. Together with UYDEL’s executive director and the project coordinator, I managed the YFS/ARH program which involved one drop-in center, one outreach post per district, and one paid health worker/nurse who provided STI counseling and treatment and made referrals for other needed services (such as voluntary HIV counseling and testing (VCT), which UYDEL does not provide). In addition, it included social workers who managed the drop in centers, and 20 volunteer peer educators who recruited and educated the young people in the community about UYDEL and about reproductive health issues. They also distributed condoms and educational materials.
