Rapid assessment tool for sexual & reproductive health and HIV linkages: a generic guide

The objective of this adaptable tool is to assess HIV and SRH bi-directional linkages at the policy, systems and service-delivery levels. Ii is intended also to identify gaps, and ultimately contribute to the development of country-specific action plans to forge and strengthen these linkages. While this tool focuses primarily on the health sector it can be adapted to cover other sectors (education, social services, and labour).  Prepared and published by IPPF, UNFPA, WHO, UNAIDS, GNP+, ICW and Young Positives

This undermines human rights and jeopardizes hard won gains in the global response to HIV.

The People Living with HIV Stigma Index is a joint initiative to develop an index that will be used worldwide to measure the stigma experienced by people living with HIV.
