Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in Youth Employment. ILO. (2014)

immage

Young people are facing significant challenges in finding decent job opportunities. The 2008 global financial crisis has disproportionately impacted youth across the world. The global recovery process has weakened throughout 2012 and 2013, and the global youth unemployment rate in 2013 is estimated at 12.6 per cent. Based on the ILO calculations, more than 73  million young people are currently unemployed. Despite the magnitude of this figure, youth unemployment represents only the tip of the iceberg. Young people are affected by decent work deficits and are over-represented among worker in poor-quality jobs, measured in terms of working poverty, low pay and/or employment status and the incidence of informality. The economic and social costs of unemployment, under-employment, discouragement and widespread low-quality jobs for young women and men continue to increase.

HIV and Adolescents: Guidance for HIV Testing and Counselling and Care for Adolescents Living with HIV. WHO. (2013)

immage

Adolescents (10–19 years) and young people (20–24 years) continue to be vulnerable, both socially and economically, to HIV infection despite efforts to date. This is particularly true for adolescents—especially girls—who live in settings with a generalized HIV epidemic or who are members of key populations at higher risk for HIV acquisition or transmission through sexual transmission and injecting drug use. In 2012, there were approximately 2.1 million adolescents living with HIV. About one-seventh of all new HIV infections occur during adolescence.

HIV and Adolescents: HIV Testing and Counselling, Treatment and Care for Adolescents Living with HIV: Policy Brief. WHO. (2013)

immage

Adolescents (10–19 years) continue to be vulnerable to HIV infection. All adolescents are vulnerable to HIV due to the physical and emotional transitions, and potentially heightened risk-taking behaviour, inherent to this period of life. This is particularly true for adolescents who live in settings with a generalized HIV epidemic—especially girls in sub-Saharan Africa who often face a higher risk of infection than boys—and/or adolescents who are members of key populations at higher risk for HIV acquisition or transmission through sexual transmission and injecting drug use.
