This framework proposes standardized policies and practices to help providers, caregivers, and children navigate the individual- and situation-specific decisions as to who provides consent for HIV medical and social services or sharing of confidential HIV data. The framework is built on the core principle that consent is aligned with decision-making capacity, including cognitive and social capacity as well as the ability to act in the best interest of the child. Practice support tools to assess individual capacity and policy language are included in the framework.
