Published by UNFPA on behalf of the UNAIDS Interagency Task Team on Young People and HIV/AIDS, highlights the ways in which young people remain at the centre of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Noting that many young people are at high risk of HIV infection, the publication documents how they lack access to critical youth-friendly information, skills and services for the prevention, treatment and care of HIV and AIDS.

The publication concludes with recommended actions to support the substantial evidence that exists that prevention interventions targeting young people could significantly help curtail the AIDS epidemic.
