HIV and Adolescents: A World AIDS Day Conversation

Organized by World Vision Global Health Community of Practice 

HIV and Adolescents: A World AIDS Day Conversation

December 1, 2016
8:00 am EST
Webinar 

REGISTER HERE

You are invited to World Vision’s December Global Health, Nutrition and HIV Community of Practice World AIDS Day Webinar on HIV and Adolescents.

AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents in Africa. A majority of adolescent girls lack knowledge of how to protect themselves from HIV and also lack access to critical health services including ART. In addition, nearly half of youth and adults infected with HIV globally are associated with key populations who experience substantial rights violations and barriers to accessing services. In this World AIDS Day Webinar, we have invited three special guests and HIV and AIDS experts to our Community table.

AGENDA:

– Dr. Susan Kasedde, UNICEF Senior Specialist and Team Leader for HIV will be speaking on the prevalence rates of HIV in adolescents, the drivers and the barriers for adolescents to access prevention and treatment services.
– Rev. Phumzile Mabizela, Executive Director of the International Network of Religious Leaders Living with or personally affected by HIV and AIDS (INERELA+) will be speaking on our role as a faith community in ensuring adolescents are empowered to protect themselves from HIV and are accessing prevention and treatment services.
– Dr. Adugna Kebede, World Vision International Techincal Director for HIV and TB, will be launching World Vision’s updated manual for Channels of Hope for HIV.
