Meaningful Engagement of Adolescents and Young People in National and Local HIV Programming

Adolescents and young people (10-24 years) are being left behind in the HIV response, with high levels of new infections, and lower levels of diagnosis and treatment coverage than adults. However, adolescent and young people including those living with HIV and from young key populations, are not just beneficiaries of programs, but are important stakeholders and agents of change.

The leadership and partnership of adolescent and young people is an essential component of the design, delivery and evaluation of programs that affect them, leading to better decisions and policies. This resources developed by the Adolescent HIV Treatment Coalition, along with the Child Survival Working Group, the International AIDS Society, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, PATA, Mzantsi Wakho, UNICEF and WHO, highlights the need for programming adapted to the specific needs of adolescents and young people.
