dc.description.abstractThe article discusses the challenge of enrolling adolescents in HIV studies in South Africa. It is practically impossible in some instances to seek parental consent or to determine who, if anyone, is the legal guardian to authorize an adolescent's participation in research. The South African Medical Research Council research ethics guidelines prescribe 14 years of age as the autonomous age of consent for therapeutic research but not observational studies.en
