Yathu Yathu (“for us by us”) is a cluster-randomised trial that will evaluate the impact of community-based, peer-led SRH services on knowledge of HIV status and coverage of key SRH services among AYP. The intervention, called Yathu Yathu (For us, by us), was designed with adolescents and young people in a formative research study in 2017/18. The Yathu Yathu intervention being implemented includes: 1) delivery of comprehensive SRH services by peer support workers, lay counsellors and a nurse at community-based hubs ( called Yathu Yathu Hubs), and 2) an innovative “prevention points card” (PPC) system. This intervention is being evaluated through a cross-sectional survey conducted in two communities in Lusaka, Zambia.
