Scope of submissions
UNAIDS is seeking examples of initiatives, programmes or processes for adolescents and youth that effectively:
- Prevent new HIV infections, for example programmes that increase demand for and access to HIV prevention services for adolescents and youth such as condoms as well as SHR and HIV integration;
- Increase demand for and access to HIV treatment, care and support services for adolescents and youth living with HIV;
- Create enabling social and legal environments for adolescents and youth in the HIV response.
- Engage youth in decision-making on programmes and policies that affect their lives (i.e. engagement of young people in programme design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation, etc.).
Who can submit?
UNAIDS is seeking submissions from governments and state-sponsored programmes and processes; civil society groups; faith-based organizations; the private sector; and the UN system – that work with and for adolescents and youth in the HIV response.
