Transfer is not a transition - voices of Jamaican adolescents with HIV and their health care providers



Transfer is not a transition - voices of Jamaican adolescents with HIV and their health care providers



Aids Care 31(3): 293-297



Increasing access to antiretroviral therapy in resource-limited settings (RLS) has resulted in the survival of perinatally HIV-infected children into adulthood. We characterized the transition process from pediatric to adult care by conducting semi-structured interviews of HIV-infected adolescents and health care providers in Jamaica. Using an inductive content analytic approach, four themes emerged: (1) Transition should be holistic and a process; (2) Pediatric clinics were like families; (3) Rootedness in the pediatric clinic; and (4) Need for adolescent-centered services to bridge the gap between pediatric and adult-centered services. Adolescent informed- and centered-transition approach may result in better outcomes for HIV-infected adolescents.
