This resource provides information related to HIV testing and prevention for adolescents. Adolescents are a special population to be considered for HIV testing and prevention, as many adolescents are unaware of their risk for HIV. Depending on age, sexual behavior, and sexual orientation, some adolescents meet the criteria for regular HIV testing as well as HIV biomedical prevention through PrEP or PEP, while all adolescents should be screened at least once for HIV. This pocket guide details these clinical considerations, and provides clear scripting on sexual health history taking and psychosocial health and wellbeing to aid the clinician in discussing risks and harm reduction with their patients.
