Promising practices in peer support for adolescents and young people living with HIV

I can’t take it when someone who is older than my mom is talking to me about sex. I need to go to someone my age, a peer, and talk about sex. Honestly me, I am a patient at (clinic name), when the nurse asks me if I use protection, I tell her yes. But when I go to (peer supporter), I tell her the truth, that I don’t use condoms. We can speak freely as young people.
