Objectives: • Share current state of evidence on PrEP use and discuss key considerations for the implementation of PrEP among older adolescents as input into the 2016 updated WHO guidelines on PrEP • Identification of adolescents who could benefit from PrEP • Discuss potential approaches for enrolling and motivating sexually active older adolescents in targeted population groups to use PrEP using evidence and documented experiences from other initiatives • Identify priority areas for further research • Identify opportunities for advocacy and innovation
