Program Description

American youth are particularly impacted by HIV infection. According to most recent estimates, about 1 in 4 people receiving a new HIV diagnosis is between 13 and 24 years old. The overwhelming majority of those new diagnoses occur among young men who have sex with men (MSM); young black/African American and Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men are especially affected. While the need to target HIV prevention strategies to young individuals is clear, such interventions are currently underutilized among populations most likely to benefit.

As sexual health may be a tricky topic of discussion with young teens, this program features a multidisciplinary, expert faculty panel discussing practical strategies for initiating conversations about sexual health and how adolescents can protect themselves against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. The need to target prevention strategies to adolescents at risk for HIV is discussed, as are evidence-based prevention interventions. Barriers to the implementation of HIV prevention strategies in youth are explored, as well as strategies for overcoming these barriers.

Intended Audience

Pediatricians, school nurses, clinicians who practice in school-based health centers, primary care physicians (PCPs), and nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) who treat adolescents

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the disproportionate burden of HIV infection borne by adolescents in the United States
  • Review the racial and geographic disparities in HIV prevention access, availability, and protection levels among American youth
  • Identify key HIV prevention and treatment barriers between clinicians and adolescent patients
  • Educate at-risk youth about risk factors for HIV acquisition as well as biomedical and behavioral interventions for prevention
