INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON HIV & ADOLESCENCE CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS 2020

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This abstract driven workshop will be guided by cross-cutting themes in the field of adolescent health and HIV care. Each session will include an invited plenary, abstract presentations, debates, and discussions. Young people will take the roll of session chairs and be involved in all aspects of the program. To further their engagement and leadership, we will devote a day to skills building workshops specifically designed by young people, for young people. Moreover, a market place will be held during which organizations engaged in field of HIV and adolescence have the opportunity to share their publications, tools, and other materials. This concept has proven to be an excellent networking platform to share ideas, exchange knowledge and lessons learned, and form vital new collaborations.
