Abstract:This study explores how youth and youth organizations in the New Juaben municipality of Ghana's Eastern Region are tackling issues relating to youth and HIV/AIDS since 2001. In particular it examines the role of young people in HIV prevention programmes (cases of 4-H Ghana and the Philip Foundation) and looks at the obstacles facing youth in the fight against the HIV pandemic. Fieldwork was carried out in 2004. The study argues that the youth of New Juaben municipality are playing a leading role in dealing with the spread of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Yet youth and youth organizations are faced with considerable constraints that threaten the sustenance of their HIV/AIDS intervention activities, such as lack of technical and financial support. This may undermine the sustenance of their HIV prevention programmes. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. in English and French. [ASC Leiden abstract]
