Youth focus group in Yei, South Sudan

In 2006, South Sudan was just beginning to recover from more than 30 years of war with the North.  I completed the first Knowledge-Attitudes-Practices assessment of HIV/AIDS and Gender amongst youth in Juba and Yei Counties for the NGO War Child-Holland. The rapid situation and response assessment provided baseline data and recommendations for gender and HIV/AIDS programming.

Micronesia 

The Federated States of Micronesia has one of the highest per capita rates of youth suicide in the world.  I developed a  training manual for community participation and action planning for youth suicide prevention in the country and facilitated training-of-trainers workshops in Kosrae and Yap States for the FSM National Department of Health and Social Affairs Division of Youth Affairs in 2005-06.
