The DREAMS Partnership
July 19, 2017
This briefing paper provides an overview of the DREAMS program in Malawi, a public-private partnership led by PEPFAR; it discusses some of the major implementation opportunities and challenges, and concludes with implications for U.S. policy. At a time of constrained U.S. budgets, the new, comprehensive approaches to prevent HIV in adolescent girls and young women address a critical gap in efforts to curb the epidemic, and simultaneously could advance the economic and social progress for adolescent girls and young women, their families and communities.
