The development, implementation and oversight of strategies and programs for AGYW was driven by their active and meaningful engagement at all stages. AIC ensured that AGYW were empowered, through education and support to take charge of their own health and to make and enact decisions in relation to their health and sexuality. AIC ensured that the needs and realities of AGYW were placed at the center of biomedical, behavioral and structural interventions that seek to improve their health and well-being; and services were delivered effectively through people-centered approaches.
AIC engaged AGYW in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation stages of the project. AGYW were involved in baseline assessments, priority setting, mapping of hotspots and resources, identification of safe spaces and preferred community social service points
