In February 2016, Project SOAR convened a Technical Advisory Network meeting, attended by more than 50 international and domestic thought leaders in adolescent HIV care research and a small group of youth from southern Africa who are living with HIV. To prepare the groundwork for the meeting, SOAR produced a background paper synthesizing the literature on HIV continuum of care outcomes among adolescents living with HIV (ALHIV) in sub-Saharan Africa, where most adolescent cases of HIV are concentrated. This report presents the findings from the literature review and highlights from the Technical Advisory Network meeting. The first section is a summary of the review’s findings, specifically what we know about ALHIV along the care continuum. The second section of the report summarizes the outcomes from the meeting, including a set of priority research questions for the larger HIV community, as well as for Project SOAR, to consider addressing as part of new or ongoing studies.
