Abstract

Adolescents living with HIV (ALHIV) struggle with questions pertaining to their future; contemplating "Now what?" The authors, a nongovernmental organization from India, designed residential workshops for ALHIV to provide them the space to share concerns and draw support from peers. This increased their self-belief and agency, induced voluntarism, and resulted in formation of a support group, "So What!" The members volunteered in planning a similar workshop for their peers and also shared their experiences of disclosure in the form of a booklet. Active involvement of ALHIV could be a key strategy to address the needs of ALHIV.

KEYWORDS:

HIV infected adolescents; disclosure; peer support group; psycho-social support; transitioning to adulthood
