The five research reports that constitute this monograph are a fruit of the collaboration between the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) of the USA, two institutions with a longstanding interest in the study of youth and social transformations in Africa. Under the collaboration, 12 young African researchers were able to benefit from fellowships, workshops and the expertise of resource persons, to pursue research on Youth, HIV/AIDS and Social Transformation. While still very much work in progress, the studies by Donald Antony Mwiturubani, Ayalew Gebre, Paulo Margarida, Mate Rekopantswe and Antione Socpa contribute significant empirical insights from five different countries (Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Cameroon) to ongoing debates on how youth and social processes in Africa shape, and are shaped, by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
