This document brings together key note speeches and summaries of debates from the Imagined Futures II conference. Topics include: students as agents of change; curriculum; knowledge exchange; peer education and masculinity.
The paper outlines a background to the current social, health, sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV and AIDS status of young people, and the magnitude and impacts of the AIDS epidemic with specific focus on young people's vulnerability to HIV infection.
