Good Practice Guide: Adolescent HIV Programming. Armstrong A, Iorpenda K, Caswell G and Kihara C. (2017)

immage

A greater understanding of HIV in high prevalence countries has increased awareness of the need to prioritise adolescents in HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. At the same time, a growing recognition that adolescence is a distinct time of life has focused attention on adolescents’ different needs. Adolescents are now included as a separate target group in global and national strategies.

Increased access to HIV testing and treatment means that, more than ever, adolescents living with HIV know their status and are living longer on antiretroviral therapy (ART). Much more work is needed, however, to meet adolescents’ needs for prevention, care, treatment and support services.

A Common Cause - Reaching Every Woman and Child through Universal Health Coverage. Rosa G, Wright S and Gugushvili D. (2016)

immage

Countries around the world have committed to a historic ambition: to end preventable child and maternal deaths within a generation.

A Common Cause shows why two key movements in global health – maternal and child health, and Universal Health Coverage – need to join forces to make that ambition a reality.

The report argues for universal access to an integrated continuum of care for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health, provided through strengthened primary healthcare and referral systems.

Adolescent Boys and Young Men: Engaging Them as Supporters of Gender Equality and Health and Understanding their Vulnerabilities. Kato-Wallace J, Barker G, Sharafi L, Mora L and Lauro G. (2016)

immage

Adolescence is a key period where individuals of all gender identities form attitudes, opinions and beliefs – about themselves, about their sexuality and about their place in the world. It is a period when ideas about equality can become ingrained. The study emphasizes that a holistic approach to advancing gender equality and sexual and reproductive health must include both adolescent girls and boys. It highlights the need to engage adolescent boys and young men as allies to achieve gender equality and as supporters of women’s empowerment, as well as the importance of addressing the specific health and social development needs of boys themselves.

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.
