Pediatric HIV Champions in Action

A Community-Based Approach to Improve Pediatric Referrals and Care in an Urban Informal Settlement

AIDSFree partner IMA World Health strengthened community engagement through a team of “pediatric champions,” specifically religious leaders, youth leaders, and community health workers (CHWs), to increase knowledge, demand, and uptake of pediatric HIV services. These individuals represent a vital cadre for engaging communities, influencing perceptions, and ensuring that initiatives improve young people´s health outcomes. This poster provides an overview of the project.
