Background: Despite over three decades of HIV, its prevalence especially among adolescents remains a public health concern. In 2015, there were more than two million adolescents living with HIV, with a higher proportion coming from sub-Sahara Africa. In Cameroon, there are over 40,000 adolescents living with HIV and there are still concerns about the provision of care to them as adolescents are trapped between paediatric and adult services which are unable to address their specific needs. However, there are limited studies in Cameroon that have examined adherence to antiretroviral treatment and associated factors as well as treatment outcomes among adolescents. It is therefore essential to clearly understand the detenninants of adherence of these adolescents and their treatment outcomes.
