READY+2 (2021-2026) builds on lessons learnt from READY+ (2016-2020). The programme will directly reach 35,614 adolescents and young people living with or most affected by HIV and support them to become more resilient, empowered, and knowledgeable and have the bodily autonomy, freedom, and agency to realise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.
READY+2 includes prevention components with greater focus on mental health and reaching adolescents and young people in all their diversity. READY+2 will be implemented in Eswatini, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe with targeted interventions planned for Malawi, Zambia and Angola.
Within READY, PATA provides technical assistance at selected health facilities and provides training for health providers in adolescent friendly services, HIV-SRHR integration, and advocacy in action. This is complemented with on-site mentoring, quality improvement planning and monitoring, and the integration of C3 methodologies.
