Call for Best Practices for Adolescent/Youth-friendly HIV Services

by on May 7, 2015

MEASURE Evaluation welcomes proposals for inclusion in a Compendium of Best Practices for Adolescent/Youth-friendly HIV Services. The goal of this activity is to answer critical questions that move forward USAID’s mission of supporting (a) the adoption of evidence-based practices in adolescent/youth-friendly HIV care and services to help at-risk adolescents (age 10-19 years) and youth (age 15-24 years) stay HIV-free, and (b) the provision of comprehensive packages of HIV prevention, care, treatment, and retention services to adolescents/youth living with HIV in order to promote their successful transition to adulthood. Add your voice, knowledge and expertise in answering these questions:

  • What are the most practical and innovative approaches to providing adolescent/youth-friendly HIV prevention, care, treatment and retention services and supports?
  • What creative, promising and proven strategies and approaches can we rely on to ensure that services and supports are clinically effective, culturally appropriate, and achieve desired outcomes among adolescents/youth?
  • What are the best practices for engaging adolescents/youth in planning, implementing and evaluating HIV-prevention, care, treatment, and retention services?
  • What practical strategies can be utilized to support and sustain adolescent/youth-led organizations to ensure authentic adolescent/youth voices in HIV prevention, care, treatment, and retention services?

This environmental scan of adolescent/youth-friendly HIV services focuses on persons aged 10-24 years in 22 countries receiving support from the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). These countries include Botswana, Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
