National Resource Center for HIV/AIDS Prevention among Adolescents (Resource Center)

In order to achieve the three primary goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), reducing HIV infection, increasing access and improving care, and reducing HIV-related health disparities, the NHAS challenges stakeholders to respond in a more coordinated national response. Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that youth ages 13-24 years have the highest proportion of undiagnosed HIV and that the rate of HIV diagnoses is increasing 1, the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) responded to this challenge for a more coordinated national response with the funding opportunity announcement for a national resource center for HIV prevention among adolescents.

In December 2011-2014, the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center was awarded funding from OAH to develop a National Resource Center for HIV/AIDS Prevention among Adolescents (Resource Center). The goal of the Resource Center was to build national capacity in youth HIV prevention by providing a central, online location to access training, technical assistance, information exchange, and a resource library to remain current about published literature and evidence-based programs and practices.
