Maisha Bora Curriculum (Healthy Lives)
The “Maisha Bora” (Healthy Lives) Curriculum provides comprehensive life skills-based HIV prevention education for young people.
The curriculum was developed in Tanzania but has also been adapted for use in Zambia. This manual was designed as a guide for peer educators in promoting sexual and reproductive health knowledge and positive healthy behaviors, but it can also serve as a resource for any individual who works with young people. It was developed in recognition of the fact that young people are one of the most vulnerable groups who account for the greater percentage of new HIV infections.
Maisha Bora was evaluated in 2010. The findings showed that youth who received outreach/information through the peer educators using the curriculum increased their knowledge and attitudes around key topics such as HIV education and prevention, as evidenced by pre- and post-tests.
