Abstract

HIV infection in adolescents continues to challenge health care providers, policy makers, and advocates for youth. Primary care providers working with parents of adolescents and at-risk youth are in a unique position to identify or help develop HIV prevention and care programs that address many needs. Effective interventions are those that move beyond moralism to realism and a willingness to engage youth and their families. Youth at high risk for HIV should be identified and engaged in primary care as soon as possible. HIV-infected youth need intensive individual and group interventions to keep themselves healthy and reduce transmission to others. Incumbent on all providers is to make adolescents' services visible, flexible, affordable, confidential, culturally appropriate, and available for all youth.
