Abstract

BACKGROUND: Prioritizing HIV prevention for adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) at high risk for HIV acquisition in sub-Saharan Africa (typically considered ≥3 per 100 person-years [PYs]) is urgently needed, but identifying these AGYW is challenging. We sought to assess and, if needed, enhance a risk assessment tool from the VOICE trial for identifying AGYW at high risk for HIV in Lilongwe, Malawi.
