Adolescents are developmentally at a difficult crossroad, which makes it challenging to attract and sustain adolescents’ focus on maintaining their health. Thus, every effort must be made to engage and retain adolescents in care so they can improve and maintain their health for the long term.
Whereas research on treatment of HIV infected adolescents is often discussed at major meetings, there is currently no platform that solely focuses on this topic. In order to meet to need for international interchange in order to bring this field forward, we are developing the International Workshop on HIV & Adolescence: challenges and solutions.
At major meetings, advances in HIV management focuses mainly on either adults or children, leaving out this key group of individuals – the adolescents. To meet this need for international interchange in order to bring the field forward, we have initiated the International Workshop on HIV & Adolescence: challenges and solutions.
This workshop is set up as an inclusive summit for multidisciplinary experts working with adolescents affected by HIV.
The objective will be to share experiences, knowledge and best practices with the aim of defining a pathway forward for optimizing care for adolescents living with HIV.
