As young people living with HIV age, transition to adult care is increasingly required. The aim of our study was to describe how a care transition program was developed in an HIV adult clinic in Genoa, Italy. This is a descriptive study including 45 HIV-infected patients who participated in the transition process from a pediatric unit to an adult Infectious Diseases Unit, which started in 2000. A dedicated day, patient-customized environment, psychological support, and all health services in one site were provided. In 2014, a survey form was created to investigate the efficacy of the transition. At survey compilation time, 38 patients (84.4%) were retained in care, 2 were lost to follow-up, 2 were transferred to another adult clinic, and 3 had died. We highlight the importance of planning the transition process and the role of the interprofessional team to guarantee a successful transition for HIV-infected children and adolescents.
