Streamlining Mental Health Interventions for Youth Living with HIV in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
This concept aims to solicit research to target gaps in our knowledge about how best to address the mental health needs of youth living with HIV (YLWH) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). There are two main goals of the concept. The first is to increase the number of mental health interventions tailored to the unique needs of YLWH, both in terms of their developmental needs as well as the issues related to living with a chronic, stigmatized disease. The second goal is to ensure that interventions are streamlined for implementation in resource-limited settings.
