Ready+ is a project that seeks to create resilient and powerful adolescents and young people living with HIV (A&YPLHIV).

Also, advocating for meaningful youth participation in policy formulation and lobby for greater accountability of decision makers and policy makers to the SRHR needs of A&YPLHIV.

These outcomes remind all of us working on READY+ what we want to achieve, and the indicators that will help us measure whether we are on track. We will work together, led by young people living with HIV, to measure and learn from our results. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or +268 2404 4721
We know that there are lots of guidelines,manuals and standards, such as those from the Word Health Organization (WHO) that you are expected to use to make your services more youth-friendly.
One document that we think is also very important when working with young people living with HIV is the Positive Health Dignity and Prevention Framework.2 This was developed by people livingwith HIV and encourages everyone to share responsibility for preventing HIV.It is about more than just our physical, mental and sexual health. It focuses on the rights, dignity and complete wellbeing of people living with HIV and the importance of meaningfully involving people living with HIV; hearing our voices and recognising our needs and desires.
We made this leaflet in consultation with young people from Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Mozambique and Swaziland - who are all part of the READY+ project and members of the Global Network of Young People Livingwith HIV (Y+) - so you can hear directly from young people about what really matters.
At the end of the leaflet there is a Charter. We hope you will feel proud to use this in your clinics and offices to show people that you support young people living with HIV to be positive about their futures, live healthy lives and be treated with dignity and respect.
There is also a scorecard for young people in your services to let you know how you are doing and for you to measure your progress.
Please share this with your colleagues and friends so that more youngpeople living with HIV can have the best possible support.
We know that you can make a huge difference to the experience of youngpeople accessing services.We are relying on you to help us stay happy, healthy and safe.
