This Toolkit is a guide that assists both health care providers (HCPs) and community care providers (CCPs) to tailor a package of services for adolescents living with HIV. HCPs and CCPs are the primary users of the Toolkit, and they should use the Toolkit and distribute content/tools as appropriate to the adolescent and the family/caregiver. The Toolkit provides: 1. A framework to promote self-care: The Key Checklists (found on pages 12 to 16) provide a framework for transition to self-care and should be reviewed on a semiannual basis to set and review self-management goals and to determine if the adolescent is on track. As you use the Key Checklists, please note that male and female adolescent clients may experience transition differently and may have different strengths and barriers associated with health care. 2. A framework for a minimum package of services: Utilize the modules within the Toolkit only as they are needed. Some adolescents will utilize several modules throughout the transition period while others may only require minimal resources from the Toolkit. The provider should only utilize the Toolkit as it is relevant to the adolescent and his or her family/caregiver.
