Overview: The Partnership for an HIV-Free Generation (HFG) was an innovative global public-private partnership aimed at reducing HIV incidence among youth in Kenya that united global leaders from the private and public sectors, along with host country governments, NGOs, and community members to revolutionize HIV prevention among youth in the target countries.
