Implementation guidance for health providers and planners

How to use this website

This site is divided into eight main sections, seen on the green menu bar above. This green menu bar allows you to move directly from one main section to another. It also provides a reference to where you are on the site at any given time. Each main section is further divided into sub-sections providing further detail on each topic area.

As well as the main text of each section, additional resources are available offering further information, implementation tools and guidance, perspectives of adolescents living with HIV, health providers and planners as well as practice examples of approaches. These are indicated by a range of icons shown below. Holding your mouse over the icon reveals a brief description of each resource, and clicking on the icon opens it.

Throughout the site you can return to the main text by closing the pop up resources (i.e. by clicking the 'x' in the top right-hand corner).
