Birdthistle I, Tanton C, Tomita A, De Graaf K, Schaffnit SB, Tanser F, Slaymaker E. Recent levels and trends in HIV incidence rates among adolescent girls and young women in ten high-prevalence African countries: a systematic review and meta-analysis. The Lancet. Global health. 2019 Nov;7(7). e1521-e1540. PMID: 31607465 [PubMed]
The roll-out of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has changed contexts of HIV risk, but the influence on HIV incidence among young women is not clear. We aimed to summarise direct estimates of HIV incidence among adolescent girls and young women since ART and before large investments in targeted prevention for those in sub-Saharan Africa.
