In many settings, children—especially those who are vulnerable and marginalized—are at high risk for HIV. However, many HIV prevention, testing, treatment, and care policies and guidelines for informed consent and the management of confidential HIV data in the health, education, and social welfare sectors are not designed to address the needs and contexts of children. In Kenya, HP+ worked with government and donor stakeholders, organizations implementing medical and social welfare HIV services for children, and youth representatives to conduct a consultation to gain insight into the country context of children’s consent for HIV services. This report presents findings from the consultations and common themes around children’s consent.
