According to the CDC, in 2018 21% of new HIV diagnoses in the US and dependent areas were among youth. In order to help prevent HIV infection in system involved youth, providers need to understand risk factors, prevention strategies and how to teach this information to their clients. Providers need to understand the psychosocial issues and how to support HIV+ system involved youth and their families. In this class we will focus on prevention, signs and symptoms, testing, stages of infection, legal issues, social and cultural issues, preparing youth for loss of a parent from HIV, mental health issues and resources.
