The Learning Together Project poses the question: how might participatory methodologies bring together the various sectors and partners working in the area of gender, youth and HIV/AIDS prevention and care in one community? The projectâ€™s focus is on local contexts and the ways in which members of local groups within the same community and working with the same families and youth see their work, their interface with the policies and procedures that drive their practices, the tensions, challenges and barriers to service delivery, and their lived-experience of their own needs and the needs of youth within the community they serve when it comes to addressing AIDS prevention and treatment.
