Abstract

The goals of the five-year Abstinence and Be Faithful Among Youth (ABY) project were to bolster abstinence, faithfulness and the avoidance of unhealthy sexual behaviour among youths. KEITSHEPILE GEOFFREY SETSWE and KHANGELANI ZUMA conducted a quantitative baseline evaluation of the ABY project in five South African cities, with data collected from 1 620 respondents just before the ABY intervention started.
