The PopART for youth study.
The P-ART-Y study seeks to evaluate the acceptability and uptake of an HIV combination prevention package, including universal HIV testing and treatment, among young people. The study involves almost 122,000 young people (aged 10-24 years) across South Africa and Zambia. It is a three-arm community-randomized trial in 12 communities in Zambia and nine communities in South Africa
P-ART-Y is nested within the HPTN 071 (PopART) trial, the largest community-randomised trial evaluating the impact of a combination prevention package including universal testing and treatment in reducing new HIV infections in the world.
The study is led by Zambart, Zambia, in partnership with the Desmond Tutu TB Center of South Africa, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and Imperial College London.
