According to estimates by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) in 2021, 60 percent of HIV positive children and adolescents in South Asia live in India. USAID, with support of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), set up Adolescent-Friendly Health Centers (AFHCs) through its flagship program, ACCELERATE, led by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, to support 10-17-year-old HIV positive adolescents with comprehensive health care and services.
