Satellite Session: Clinical Models of HIV Care for Adolescents
18 July 2016, 10:15-12:15
Session Room 9, International Convention Centre (ICC), Durban, South Africa

Reducing new infections and AIDS-related deaths among adolescents is a key component of the global plan to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. The IAS Youth Voices Initiative is organizing a satellite symposium to provide a platform for researchers, healthcare professionals and programme implementers to discuss promising clinical care practices for adolescents, to assess replicability in different contexts, and to identify options for adaptation, where required.

The symposium is thus designed to both strengthen the evidence base through presentation of new research on adolescent HIV services, and to help address key gaps in adolescent HIV prevention and care by improving knowledge among practitioners of targeted approaches.

The specific learning objectives are to understand:

  • strengths and weaknesses of different clinical care models and how this affects the prevention, care and treatment outcomes for adolescents;
  • how HIV care services are experienced by adolescents living with HIV and what kind of support they need;
  • how HIV services and health care professionals can support the optimization of clinical care delivery.

As part of the AIDS 2016 satellite programme of meetings and events, the Satellite Session is open to all AIDS 2016 delegates.

The scientific programme of the Clinical Models of HIV Care for Adolescents Satellite has been reviewed by the American Medical Association and approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.  Please click here for more information on CME credits.
