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.

immage

This report provides a snapshot of available data on injecting drug use among children and young people under the age of 18. It has three main aims:

  • To increase attention to an often-overlooked aspect of responses to HIV and other health harms associated with unsafe injecting.
  • To begin to understand the extent of the problem internationally, and how prevalence and patterns vary between regions and countries.
  • To identify gaps and limitations in data collection in order to begin filling them.

Lost in Transitions: Current Issues Faced by Adolescents Living with HIV in Asia Pacific. UNICEF, UNESCO, TREAT ASIA and APN+. (2013)

immage

In Asia Pacific, an estimated 230,000 children under 15 years of age were living with HIV in 2012, with approximately 25 percent of them receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART). The paediatric HIV epidemic is entering the next phase of its evolution in the region, as children infected from birth enter adolescence and face new challenges. These adolescents living with HIV are now dealing with the complex social, economic, mental and developmental consequences of life-long HIV and ART. Having been infected before development of their immune systems and experienced in many cases sub-optimal ART options and formulations, they are facing the transition from complete dependence on their guardians to becoming their own caregivers.
