Overview

This document is intended for individuals and organizations in developed and developing countries that are interested in the prevention and care of HIV among young people. It contains a technical report on a global consultation that examined the health service response to HIV among young people.

The report reviews the evidence for effectiveness for a number of interventions delivered though a range of different service providers, including information and counselling; use and distribution of condoms for sexually active young people; STI treatment and care; harm reduction and measures to decrease transmission through IDU and access to HIV testing, care and support.

The report reviews the evidence of effective delivery of these interventions in a range of settings and develops a set of recommendations as to how to accelerate action towards internationally recognised global goals on HIV and young people in countries.
