Abstract

Eliminating adolescent HIV in high-burden African countries depends on the success of implementing evidence-based interventions to reduce transmission and improve treatment outcomes. The Adolescent HIV Prevention and Treatment Implementation Science Alliance (AHISA) takes a collaborative approach to addressing key challenges and identifying and developing new areas of investigation to advance the adolescent HIV agenda. This special supplement represents the collective learning of the Alliance related to implementation science in the context of the adolescent HIV continuum of care from multiple African countries. Specifically, this series describes the current academic landscape of adolescent HIV and implementation science, such as the methodological use and utility of implementation measures and frameworks; addresses timely topics such as the use of innovative technologies for study adaptations in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic; and explores opportunities to enhance adolescent-responsive approaches to HIV prevention and treatment using implementation science.
