AbstractThere are high rates of HIV in adolescent girls in low resource countries due to the high incidence and prevalence of sexual violence. The purpose of this project is to collect the data of educational programs that aim to decrease rates of HIV and describe their characteristics, specifically, the rates of HIV, the rate of sexual violence, condom use, and sexual practices before and after intervention by education programs. The data shows that none of the studied measures changed after educational programs.
