Invitation to submit proposals for the evaluation of the Soul City’s young women’s clubs

Background

Soul City: Institute for Health & Development Communication (Soul City) is a South African NGO internationally recognised for excellence in the field of health communication. Soul City, through a Global Fund grant, is implementing young women’s’ clubs in 5 provinces in South Africa. The clubs will bring together young women from mainly informal settlements to dialogue about issues that increase their vulnerability to HIV. Through building social cohesion, increasing their resilience and linking them to health, social and economic activities, the clubs seek to mitigate the risk of HIV amongst young women. The HIV prevention efforts of the programme will focus on structural drivers of the epidemic such as alcohol misuse, gender based violence and lack of access to sustainable livelihoods and increase linkage to services.

  • Overall reach of individual program elements within target populations
