DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
Girls Health Champions cultivates a network of youth health educators (Champions) in Mumbai, India who lead the health education process in their schools and communities. We use an innovative, evidence-based peer education model that leverages the voices, talent, and leadership of adolescent girls themselves. Our approach provides girls with the knowledge, dialogue, support, and prevention strategies they need to navigate their health needs during adolescence and the pivotal transition to adulthood.
