The National Department of Social Development has developed a Compendium of Social and Behaviour Change Programmes, which is intended for the prevention of new infections of HIV as well as curbing the scourge of Gender-Based Violence.

The Families Matter Programme is a community-based, group-level intervention programme for parents and caregivers of children and youth. The Programme focuses on raising parents’ awareness about the sexual risks teens face today.

Furthermore, the Programme encourages general parenting practices that increase the likelihood that children will not engage in risky sexual behaviours. The Programme also equips parents with skills for parental monitoring (knowing where one’s child is, who they are with and when they will be home), positive reinforcements and relationship building.

The implementation of this Programme will thus improve parents’ ability to effectively communicate with their children about sexuality and sexual reduction. This will assist children and youth in being armed with accurate information, which is key in curbing peer pressure toward sex-related topics.
