Promoting healthy sexual behavior among adolescents in southern and eastern Africa: Mobilizing Schools, Parents and Communities

This was a cluster-randomized trial conducted in 22 government secondary schools in Uganda. It examined the effects of a school-based intervention aimed at improving aspects of parent/caregiver-adolescent communication on sexuality. The intervention comprised of classroom-based education sessions, take home assignments for students to discuss with parents/caregivers and parenting workshops. Baseline and post intervention questionnaires were completed by students and by parents/caregivers.

It was funded by the European Union between 2010 to 2014 and three articles were written as a result.
