Worldwide, it is estimated that 1,8 million adolescents age 10-19 were living with HIV in 2015. HIV continues to be one of the leading causes of deaths among adolescents age 10-19, claiming 41,000 lives in 2015. And numbers of adolescents living with HIV (ALWH) will continue to rise at the projected rate of 250,000 new infections per year among adolescents age 15-19 between 2015 and 2020 and even more afterward if the response remains the same.
Adolescents are not adults at younger ages. They have distinctive developmental characteristics that need to be seriously taken into account while engaging with them in HIV programmes. This session addresses the particular needs of ALWH for services. The workshop is led and facilitated by young people and designed to accommodate policy makers, programme managers, service providers, community advocates and researchers. During the workshop, participants can learn more about the role of peers in providing psychosocial support, discuss the necessities of differentiated service provision for this special population, and hear from young people about what they want. Come prepared to interact as this session is highly participatory and will include a movie screening and online quiz.
 
Objectives:
- To deepen the understanding of participants about what is differentiated care for ALWH;
- To learn more about best practice examples of differentiated service delivery for ALHW; and
- To discuss what we know and what we don’t going forward.
