E-Poster | A Market-led, Client centred, economic strengthening as structural HIV approach Results from Namibia prevention

In Namibia, adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) aged 15-24 years are disproportionately affected by HIV, with a 1.06% incidence compared to 0.03% incidence among young men.
Economic disparity related to gender inequality is an ongoing and complex driver of the HIV epidemic, especially for vulnerable AGYW. Among young people aged 15-34 years, unemployment is at 46.1%, with females experiencing higher unemployment (48.5%) than males (43.7%). A skills discrepancy between the labour market demand and supply is a major factor for the high youth unemployment. The PEPFAR/USAID – funded DREAMS project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Sport Youth and National Services, Bantwana Zimbabwe, and FR Research Services, conducted a labour market assessment to explore this gap.
