Adolescents (13-19years) and Young Adults (15-24) (AYA) form part of a highly vulnerable group for HIV infections according to UNAIDS. This study focused on investigating programmatic management of HIV and AIDS among AYA in a learning institution, ongovernmental organisation and Urban Clinic. The study adopted a descriptive study design. A stratified random sample of 102 students was taken from the training institute and a purposive sample of 13 respondents’ representatives from two organisations was drawn. The study indicated that AYA themselves perceived the severity of the HIV epidemic as they believed certain behaviours had to be promoted to overcome perceived fears of contracting the HIV virus and AIDS. About 72.3% indicated that they would prevent contracting HIV by condom usage and 60.6% said, limiting sex to one partner. The study recommended strengthening communication methods and programmes in managing the fight against HIV and AIDS among AYA in organisations by incorporating communication plans in their strategic plan programmes.
