The article focuses on youth voices about sex and AIDS, revealing significant discrepancies between the 'ideal adult worldview' and the 'practical youth worldview' on sexual matters. Drawing on theories of childhood development and student development, the article argues that effective life skills curricula, with a rights-based approach, and maximum youth engagement achieved through participatory methodologies such as visual and arts-based methods, is key to HIV prevention among young people.
