"As the needs of people living with HIV and AIDS (PLHA) and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) continue to escalate, results from an intervention study by the Horizons Program, in partnership with Care International and Family Health Trust, provide a promising picture of young peoples’ potential to contribute to community-based care and support activities. The study also indicates that involving young people in the care and support of persons affected by HIV and AIDS may have a positive effect on their adoption of some protective behaviors."
