Where are we headed ? 2016 HIV High Level Forum Commitments In 2016, the world committed to ambitious HIV: Prevention targets a) Children (start free) - <20,000 new infections in 2020 b) Adolescents &young women (stay free) - <100,000 in 2020 Treatment Targets Children and adolescents (AIDS Free) Provide life long HIV treatment to 95% of children and adolescents living with HIV How we perform in the remaining 29 months around adolescents and young women will drive our ability to achieve epidemic control by 2030. HIV and prevention challenges among adolescent girls and young women UNICEF | for every child HIV Prevention Coalition and 2020 Roadmap commitment 75% reduction in HIV infections to < 500 000 infections by 2020 at population level < 100, 000 in adolescent girls and young women Understanding determinants of infections Gender norms that promote sexual ignorance among girls Girls have lower correct knowledge about HIV risk 60% are sexually active by age 18 Older sexual partner and lower condom use Intimate partner violence (as high as 30%) Injection drug use (about 50% under 18) Multiple vulnerabilities of AGYW - early sexual debut, teenage pregnancy, school drop out Magnified in OVCs Associated later sexual risk taking

Our understanding has improved Scale up responses must: Be based on the key drivers of the epidemic and what works Also leverage existing investments in other sectors Define coordination and management structures for accountability More data work needed for size estimation especially for adolescent and young key populations We need better assessments of who is being left behind for better impact and saturation of the various interventions Participation of adolescents in the design of our programmes is key Thank You Acknowledgements: Damilola Walker Chibwe Lwamba Aleya Khalifa UNICEF/SUDA2014-XX228/Noorani
