The number of adolescents living with HIV is rapidly rising, and data focused on low-income settings is still limited. The aim of this review is to synthesise existing evidence in this area, identify gaps in HIV services for this group and highlight interrelated issues in addressing service barriers and realising rights. Key findings show that sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and psychosocial needs of adolescents living with HIV remain largely unaddressed. Health systems in low-income settings are ill-equipped to deal with the complex needs of this group.
