Ten models of adolescent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) care were funded in 1993 by the Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program, HIV/Acquired Immunodeficiency Virus (AIDS) Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration, through the Ryan White CARE Act.
These models were supported to advance knowledge about the engagement of HIV-positive and at-risk adolescents and young adults in care.
This article provides an overview of the SPNS Program's adolescent initiative, which developed and evaluated innovative models of HIV care, and provides background information on and summarizes the 10 models of care.
The models are organized into four groups emphasizing different concepts :
(a) youth involvement ;
(b) outreach to bring youth into services ;
(c) case management and linkage to services ;
and (d) a comprehensive continuum of care for youth.
