The study is published in an article, “What HIV Programs Work for Adolescent Girls?" as part of special issue of JAIDS, the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. The special issue, entitled “Ending HIV and AIDS in Adolescents," was developed by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the U.S National Institutes of Health (NIH). The findings will also be released at the 20th International AIDS conference, held in Melbourne, Australia, July 20-25. more
