The Interagency Task Team on Young People and HIV (IATT/YP) has launched a new web platform is now live and accessible at http://www.youngpeopleandhiv.org/ Thanks to all of you for reviewing the test site and providing useful feedback.
The IATT/YP has built this site to serve multiple functions:
- To provide easy access to strategic reports, global guidance, and tools relevant to HIV programming for young people.
- To disseminate data on young people and HIV from surveys, key regional and country reports and published research;
- To facilitate information sharing between the IATT/YP working groups.
- To provide a space for exchange of views among a global network of actors on published resources and information disseminated through webinars.
- To provide information on upcoming events relevant to young people and HIV.
The features included in the site are a:
1) Progress Dashboard: This dashboard currently shows key epidemiological, behavioural and service indicators for young people aged 10 -24 years. The data is based on national survey indicators currently in UNICEF?s ChildInfo database.****
2) Country and Regional Pages: This section of the site presents an overview of the epidemic in young people in each region and will house country specific reports on youth-specific HIV programming and progress collected through the IATT. *We are calling for inputs for this section. If you want any country or regional specific resources to be included in this section of the site, please send them to the Secretariat.*
3) Research pages: This section features summaries of published research articles, programme evaluations and unpublished research on young people and HIV. Through our work with the Communication Initiative we have built filters that track youth and HIV-focused research in the following themes: young women and girls, injecting drug users, young men who have sex with men, sex work, antiretroviral treatment, testing and counselling, harm reduction, condoms, circumcision, social and behavioural change, gender based violence, sexual education and life skills, incentives for change, and laws and policies.****
4) Community of Practice: This will be used principally to host moderated discussions on topics covered through webinars. It will also house working documents such as the Field Lessons report on ALHIV where we invite implementers to document their own lessons and contribute these to the report. The first discussion on the Community of Practice, started last Tuesday, is on adolescents and HIV in Emergencies as a follow up to the webinar UNICEF hosted on April 11, 2013. Sarah Karmin, UNICEF Specialist, HIV in Emergencies will moderate this discussion. We invite you to participate in this kick-off discussion. In order to register, you can click on the icon in the lower left corner of the site or via this link http://knowledge-gateway.org/youngpeople_hiv. Please encourage your colleagues to register and participate in the discussion as well. Moving forward, we hope that member agencies will use this community of practice as a platform to generate discussions on issues relevant to adolescents and HIV programing*. Suggestions and proposals for subsequent discussions are welcome*. ****
5) Private IATT/YP member e-workspace: This feature is an e-space for the IATT members to share and archive work plans, annual meeting reports, minutes from working group and steering group meetings and draft documents. IATT/YP members who have trouble accessing this site should contact the IATT/YP secretariat.
