Grassroots Soccer is an amazing, high-energy, school-based HIV prevention intervention. It uses the popularity and infrastructure of soccer to promote HIV risk reduction throughout Southern Africa by employing soccer players and coaches to deliver a school-based curriculum to boy and girls. This multi-step program teaches kids about HIV infection and promotes strategies to avoid high-risk settings and behaviors. A key aim of the program is to reduce gender inequality. It does so by engaging boys and girls in activities designed to increase self-efficacy and promote respect for women. Through example, its leaders provide alternatives to deeply ingrained community norms that perpetuate gender inequality and violence against women. On a personal note, my daughter, Rebecca Hershow, has worked for Grassroots soccer for the past two years. I have visited and watched their programs in person and can attest to the energy, fun, and transformative power of these sessions.
