Structural interventions for young people: the example of Stepping Stones and Creating Futures

Many young people live in urban informal settlements. These sites face huge health challenges, including HIV and violence, and so it is difficult to intervene there. A structural participatory approach, Stepping Stones and Creating Futures works with young people in such settlements in South Africa to transform gender norms and strengthen livelihoods in order to reduce violence and HIV risk.

This webinar provides an overview of the Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention, the outcomes of the pilot and the challenges of implementing it in difficult circumstances. How can we strengthen the outcomes of such programmes in the future?

Andrew Gibbs is a Researcher at the Health Economics and HIV/AIDS Research Division (HEARD) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. His research has been focused on participatory approaches to interventions and masculinities. His PhD focused on young men’s experiences of participating in the pilot of Stepping Stones and Creating Futures.
