Overview

A series of seven Guidance Briefs has been developed by the Inter-Agency Task Team (IATT) on HIV and Young People. Membership of the IATT includes UNAIDS, UNDP, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNODC, ILO, WFP, WHO, and the World Bank, along with a growing number of youth networks/associations, donors, civil society, and research institutions. The Briefs comprise one Brief that provides a global overview and is complemented by a separate Brief for most-at-risk young people and five others on HIV interventions among young people provided through different settings/sectors — community, education, health, humanitarian emergencies and the workplace. Each Brief has suggested actions to take at country level and additional resource materials listed.

This package of seven Guidance Briefs, based on the latest global evidence, is intended to help United Nations Country Teams and UN Theme Groups on AIDS to provide guidance to their staff members as well as governments, development partners, civil society and other implementing partners on the specific actions that need to be in place to respond effectively to HIV among young people.
