In Tanzania, only approximately one-third of 15–24-year-olds know their HIV status—a serious challenge given that HIV testing services are the entry point for prevention, care, and treatment. A review of current literature identified interaction between providers and clients as a primary factor influencing adolescent access to HIV testing services. Using findings from this review, additional stakeholder interviews, and analysis of Tanzania policy documents, this assessment explores how the country’s existing policy frameworks promote or inhibit effective provider-client interactions and quality of care for adolescents seeking HIV testing services.
