Adolescent-friendly Health Services for Adolescents Living with HIV: From Theory to Practice

Publications - Released in 2019

HIV services for adolescents living with HIV often have limited integration with other adolescent health services such as those for mental health, adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Many adolescents living with HIV therefore continue to receive services that do not meet the explicit principles for providing adolescent-friendly health services: equitable, acceptable, accessible, appropriate and effective.

This publication primarily seeks to define and clarify the key elements of adolescent-friendly health services, summarize existing guidance on adolescent-friendly health services and differentiated service delivery for adolescents living with HIV while showcasing best-practice case studies based on country experience in implementing these services.
