Counseling programs for adolescents living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) encourage abstinence from sex and relationships. This Uganda study, however, found that many of these adolescents are sexually active or desire to be in relationships but engage in poor preventive practices. Programs for HIV and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) programs therefore need to strengthen preventive services to this group.
