Addressing the Needs of Adolescent Girls and Young Women in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

Adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) are at the forefront of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Due to a host of interpersonal and social issues, they are among the most vulnerable populations when it comes to contracting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. This pre-conference workshop will explore avenues for addressing the needs of AGYW; take a focused look at the needs of key populations within the broader AGYW population, such as sex workers and orphans; and discuss concerns and needs of this vulnerable population. Pre-conference participants will hear from AGYW experts and have an opportunity to share their questions, concerns and best practices alongside leading organizations working with AGYW through interactive activities and open dialogue.
