HIV Prevention among Adolescent Girls and Young Women. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

The programmes described in this document aim to reduce HIV incidence among adolescent girls and young women. The epidemic dynamics, however, require programming that cuts across age and gender. New HIV infections among adolescent girls and young women are substantially higher than among males of the same age because HIV is more commonly acquired from male sexual partners who are a few or several years older. Gender inequality also disproportionately affects girls and women, but addressing it requires working with both women and men to consider not only unequal power dynamics, but also risk practices and underlying social and gender norms.


Keywords: HIV, adolescents, girls, women, prevention, empowerment, gender equality
