Featured Issue: African Journal of Reproductive Health Vol. 17 No.4s

African Journal of Reproductive Health has recently been updated on Bioline. 

This is a special issue of vol.17 and features the latest research on HIV/AIDS in sub-saharan Africa, as discussed in the editorial by Friday Okonofua. This issue features articles such as "Improving Health Services for Adolescents Living with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Multi-Country Assessment" by Pettitt et al. This article indicates that because of a high incidence of HIV among young people, there needs to be better treatment, care, support and advocacy for this group. The findings of the study indicated the adolescents with HIV could benefit from peer support and the collaboration of health care organizations.

Along with the article on improving services for adolescents with HIV, the article "Drivers of Young People’s Attitudes towards HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination: Evidence from Ghana" by Amo-Adjei & Darteh. This study focuses on how young people perceive people with HIV/AIDS and the basis of stigma and discrimination against them. One of the findings indicated that young people who were more educated about the causes and prevention of HIV/AIDS had more positive attitudes toward people living with HIV/AIDS.
