Making Proud Choices Curriculum
Initiative Description: The HIV-prevention curriculum adapted for Liberian youth, called Making Proud Choices! (MPC) is an eight-module program based on Social Cognitive Theory and the Theory of Reasoned Action. The program is designed to promote positive condom attitudes and increase skills and self-efficacy to refuse sex, negotiate condom use, and use condoms effectively.
