The global HIV/AIDS epidemic underscores the importance of reaching the most vulnerable populations with effective prevention and treatment, as well as empowering all youth and young people—female and male—to make healthy choices about their sexual and reproductive health.

EDC develops and supports the implementation of HIV/AIDS interventions in health care and community settings. We design, deliver, and evaluate programs in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the United States. Our work with youth, parents, educators, and health providers addresses stigma and other barriers to the delivery of high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.
