Mercy Corps has just published a report entitled, Commitment to Practice: A Playbook for Practioners in HIV, Youth and Sport, based on programming experience in Liberia and southern Sudan.
The paper looks at two distinct fields: within the HIV/AIDS sector, there is growing recognition that Sport for Development (SfD) approaches can contribute towards HIV prevention. Additionally, within the Sport for Development field, there is increasing emphasis on developing effective HIV/AIDS programs for youth.

The paper includes: program results; lessons learned and recommendations, and; a brief ‘how to’ guide on how to establish these programs. I’d recommend it to both HIV/AIDS and Sports for Development practioners, as well as generalists interested in this field.
