Strengthening HIV Prevention and Care in Adolescents
Certified AMA/ANCC/ACPE Activity - Lecture Library
Adolescents are disproportionately affected by HIV, accounting for approximately one in five new HIV infections in the United States. The expanded options for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in adolescents provides clinicians with additional, effective tools to further reduce the risk of HIV transmission in this group. Once diagnosed, youth with HIV are the least likely out of any age group to be linked to care and achieve viral suppression once on ART.

In this Lecture Library Dr. Fields reviews factors that increase HIV risk in adolescents, HIV/STI screening and prevention considerations in adolescents, and key considerations when prescribing HIV PrEP to adolescents along with the most recent data from CROI 2024.
Review the activity and claim AMA, ANCC or ACPE credit/contact hour after completion of a brief pretest and posttest/evaluation.
