S03E05: The Importance of Peer support and community engagement in enhancing Treatment Outcomes for Young People Living with HIV
Despite the clear need and disproportionate risk, adolescents and young people living with HIV (AYPLHIV) are underserved in the HIV response. Peer support constitutes a crucial form of adolescent and youth-responsive service packages as part of differentiated service deliveries that can support adolescents to access,and maintain treatment.

This edition features young people from across the world weighing in on how peer support has been critical in their personal journeys or those of their peers, and insightful contributions from a healthcare worker.

S03E04: Unpacking UHC HLM 2023 Commitments: "What is in it for young people and what is the role of young people in this going forward”
In this podcast, we will highlight how young people and advocates can strategically leverage these commitments to bring selfcare conversations to the forefront and hold decision makers, leaders and policy makers accountable. With targeted advocacy and collective efforts amongst youth-led networks, activist, advancing the self-care agenda, we are hopeful that selfcare will see its way into the political declaration in the next 2027 UHC HLM. After all, selfcare seeks to ensure that individuals take control of their own health and this is a positive contribution to actualising UHC.

S03E02: Recognising the Power of Self-Care: A Chat with Experts
Self-care is an essential aspect of maintaining good health. With the help of evidence-based tools like medicines, counselling, diagnostic kits, and digital technologies, individuals can take an active role in their healthcare. This empowers them to be in charge of their own well-being while simultaneously reducing the burden on healthcare systems. In an upcoming episode, mental health advocates and healthcare providers will address the common questions young people have about self-care and the areas where information may be lacking.

S03E01: Achieving UHC for Young People
Universal Health Coverage (UHC) aims to provide affordable and high-quality healthcare to all individuals without causing financial hardship. The principles of equity, non-discrimination, and the right to health ensure that even the most marginalized populations are reached and covered, leaving no one behind. To build equitable health systems, we must give young people a chance to be architects of their future and make sure their voices are heard. Join us in this episode as we explore ways to advance UHC that benefit young people and discuss the linkages between self-care and primary health care. Discover how self-care helps us reach the 95-95-95 targets.
