A greater understanding of HIV in high prevalence countries has increased awareness of the need to prioritise adolescents in HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. At the same time, a growing recognition that adolescence is a distinct time of life has focused attention on adolescents’ different needs. Adolescents are now included as a separate target group in global and national strategies. How do we best deliver HIV services to adolescents? What’s a comprehensive package of care? How do we ensure meaningful participation by adolescents in HIV programming? What about consent? All this, and more, is covered in this practical guide for programmers.
