The Youth Summit, held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania from 27 – 30 June 2016, was able
to provide a dynamic and productive learning and networking platform for adolescents
living with HIV (ALHIV) and young people who are engaged as peer supporters.
Designed and led by youth, the Youth Summit created a safe space for youth dialogues,
peer-to-peer workshops, interactive sessions, skills and team-building exercises for
peer supporters, their clinic supervisors and national network representatives. Twenty-
eight health facilities were represented, with 100 participants attending from Burundi,
Cameroon, DRC, Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
