Helping Youth Know Their HIV Status
What Works in Youth HIV hosted a webinar in observance of the 2016 National HIV Testing Day. The National HIV/AIDS Strategy emphasizes HIV testing as the first step to addressing the HIV epidemic. Given that 44 percent of youth ages 18 to 24 years living with HIV did not know they had HIV, it is imperative that youth service providers have strategies for getting youth tested and linked to care. During this webinar, presenters covered HIV testing guidelines, recruitment strategies, and youth engagement.
