What Can UNFPA Do to Prevent the Next Young Person From Becoming HIV Infected?

UNFPA’s actions to prevent HIV infection in young people should build on and expand programmes that promote healthy adolescent development and seek to ensure safer and responsible sexual lifestyles.

The three broad actions outlined below work in a complimentary and reinforcing manner, each providing a means or foundation for the other to be more effective.

1. Create a supportive and enabling environment for programming for HIV prevention


2. Strengthen HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health education programmes for young people both in and out-of-school


3. Incorporate HIV prevention strategies into "youth-friendly" sexual and reproductive health services
