Continuum of Care
  • Register

 

We strongly believe that YPLHIV need a continuum of comprehensive and accessible services that help us to live a safe, healthy and positive life, during the period of continuing development from childhood to adulthood. This continuum must recognise the different points at which we enter HIV care – from voluntary counseling and testing from a health care provider, to disclosure from a care giver for perinatally infected young people, to our health care in general. There is a real need for specific psychosocial support for our emotional, mental and sexual and reproductive health needs as they change through different stages of our young lives through to adulthood. With the support of many partners we can make sure that this is a reality for all YPLHIV.”

 

Recommendations

  • Services must be integrated either in-facility, or through a robust facilitated referral system that supports all YPLHIV at every stage of their development.
  •  Further research is needed to understand the effect of HIV, and HIV treatment, on the physical, cognitive, psychological and sexual development of YPLHIV.
  • Recruit more YPLHIV on treatment and simplify to a single tablet daily.
  • A framework needs to be developed that can be applied to programmes and policies to ensure a smooth transition between service settings through the continuous growth of children (pediatric – adolescent – young adult – adult) according to a set of criteria including but not exclusively age.
