HIV and Social Protection Guidance Note [2011]

Publication year:






UNAIDS, Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS

UNAIDS has identified social protection as a strategic priority in the global HIV response because of its importance in addressing the drivers of the epidemic as well as helping to mitigate its impacts on communities, households and individuals. This guidance note summarises information on HIV-sensitive social protection, sets out key principles to provide a strong foundation for programming, and describes the potential of social protection to advance HIV prevention, treatment, care and support outcomes. Case studies from Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, Botswana, India and Thailand illustrate how HIV-sensitive social protection is working on the ground.
