Special Edition: eHIV Review, Issue 2

AYA and Ending the HIV Epidemic

Editor's note:

This issue of ePrimaryCare Review is from a sister eLiterature Review series because the content is relevant for primary care providers. By continuing to this activity, you will be redirected to the original eLiterature Review series where you can complete the activity to receive your CME/CEU credits.

In this issue:

A wealth of evidence confirms that adolescents and young adults (AYA) are indeed a priority population whose needs must be addressed for the US Ending the HIV Epidemic program to be successful. What do providers need to know about AYA to bring more of these patients into the HIV care continuum? What should they be doing? And what should they avoid doing?

Join us as guest author Dr. Vincent Guilamo-Ramos from the Duke University School of Nursing answers these and other questions, in this issue of eHIV Review.

Learning objective:

  • Recognize adolescents and young adults – AYA — as a priority population for HIV prevention and sexual health promotion.
