MEASURE Evaluation, March 2017
Adolescents (ages 10-19) and youth (ages 15-24) bear a disproportionate share of the HIV burden, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. However, little is known about what projects are doing to make their interventions adolescent- and youth-friendly and which interventions are effective for changing HIV-related outcomes in this age group. Program managers and policymakers have little evidence derived from rigorous studies on how best to invest resources to achieve 90-90-90 targets among adolescents/young people. In recognition of this evidence, gap, MEASURE Evaluation reviewed the evidence on adolescent- and youth-friendly HIV services as a contribution toward the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) goal of creating an AIDS-free generation.
