Save the Date: AIDS 2020 Satellite Symposium

Delivering an Integrated Approach for Adolescent Mothers and their Children: What can donors and partners do to help?

 

HOSTED BY: ViiV Healthcare, in partnership with the Coalition for Children affected by AIDS

WHEN: Monday 6th July, 14h45 – 16h45

WHERE: Moscone Convention Centre, Hall D 9-10, San Francisco, CA

 

Adolescent mothers and their children are a vast and growing population that must be prioritised if we are to achieve HIV targets and the Sustainable Development Goals. An integrated, approach–combining biomedical, social and economic support–is essential to enable them to survive and thrive. The involvement of communities, families, children and adolescents themselves is also critical. This challenges all of us to change how we operate as donors, governments, policy makers, researchers, activists and service providers. This includes, for example, forging new funding partnerships and coordination structures between sectors, and between communities and institutional service providers, as well as prioritising support to children and adolescent overall.

Please save the date for this session, a satellite event, taking place during the AIDS 2020 conference in July. We will examine the role of donors and partners in fostering an integrated, community-based approach, and propose an advocacy agenda for us to take forward together.

Additional details will be shared as they become available. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please contact info@childrenandhiv.org.
