[Comment] Stemming HIV in adolescents: gender and modes of transmission

The HIV/AIDS community is paying increasing attention to the estimated 1·8 million (uncertainty bounds 1·3 million to 2·4 million) people younger than 15 years living with HIV globally,1 as was evident by the focus on adolescents at the XXII International AIDS Conference in July, 2018. This attention is welcome, and it is crucial to curtailing the HIV epidemic. But while age disaggregation can help elucidate the spread and impacts of the HIV epidemic, it is not enough. A gender lens is also needed.
