The program is currently being implemented in two regions in Southern zone and is expected to be scaled up to other regions in the lake zone in Tanzania.

3. By the end of year one, 50,000 adolescents reached through their parents and guardians with positive social norms in using preventive services and products such as VMMC, HTC, and condoms;
4. By the end of year one, 25,000 parents provided with necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to identify signs and symptoms of child sexual abuse and gender based violence;
5. By the end of year one, 25,000 parents provided with necessary skills on how to address child sexual abuse and gender based violence;
6. By the end of year one, increase optimal use of available HIV prevention, treatment, care and reproductive health services by 30% through encouraging parents to utilize and promote the uptake of VMMC, HTC, condoms and PMTCT services;
7. By the end of year five, strengthen the capacity of 5 community based organizations and 10 local government agencies to plan, implement and evaluate evidence-based prevention interventions targeting at-risk youth;
8. By the end of year one, conduct formative assessment in newly selected regions for FMP scale up;
