STOPAIDS factsheet: Adolescents and young people and HIV

STOPAIDS Factsheet Adolescents and young people and HIV.pdf

An estimated 3.9 million young people (15-24) are living with HIV and the rate of new infections is increasing. STOPAIDS has launched a factsheet with good practice guidance on how we can tailor programmes to meet young people’s needs. The factsheet takes a life course approach and looks at how biological, behavioural, social and structural factors influence HIV outcomes. 

A STRIVE case study featured on the factsheet details the ICRW partner project reducing stigma towards people living with HIV through training faculty members and young people at universities.
