Objectives

To measure the comparative effectiveness of a graduated transition and organized support group intervention against the existing strategies of abrupt transfer of Nigerian ALHIV from pediatric to adult care

Impacts

ACT’s findings will facilitate the development of standard guidelines for transitioning (Adolescents Living with HIV) ALHIV and improving health outcomes in this population

ACT will provide evidence to inform transitioning guidelines not only for ALHIV but for adolescents living with other chronic diseases in resource-limited settings. ACT interventions will significantly increase psychosocial wellbeing, retention in care and ultimately viral suppression among ALHIV.
