Youth are at the center of the HIV epidemic in Africa with 10 million 15–24-year-olds infected. The past response has failed young people by too often applying a one-size-fits-all approach to the epidemic. Recent studies show that more must be done to meet the unique needs of young people, from defining locally appropriate prevention programs, to integrating sexual and reproductive health services, to fighting stigma and discrimination.

During this session, researchers, donors, and affected youth will discuss how HIV policies and programs should be and are being shaped to be more youth-friendly. The panel will highlight current gaps and present evidence on new solutions to reach this diverse population.
