Hi Sherri

We had been engaging with the community for months before we had the protocol and yes before the study we already had a Youth Friendly Clinic that had been runnin for over 3years. We were providing youth friendly services e.g. family planning, HIV testing and treatment, pregnancy test and psychosocial counseling, so we had already established the relationship with the community. My opinion will be even though you dont have a protocol that include adolescents yet just do the ground work as we are shifting the focus now to include young people in clinical trials. This will help you when that protocol finaly comes your way.
