As HIV has become an infection that may be managed much like other chronic diseases, a focus on treatment and prevention continues. Efforts to conduct HIV testing, engage infected individuals in care, and reduce HIV transmission risk are priorities as HIV prevalence rates increase. The HIV/AIDS Section seeks to disseminate study findings related to HIV testing, prevention, and treatment in order to improve future program planning and inform needed research efforts. This session is aimed to share latest research on topics related to HIV prevention programs among youth audiences. The section identified this area as a priority, as there are continued challenges in identifying methods to reduce risk behaviors among youth. The section supported the development of session in order to share innovative approaches to HIV prevention for youth.
