A Handbook for Integrating Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights into HIV Programmes

This handbook presents key information to support training that will heighten understanding of how SRHR and MNCH are relevant to those of us working in the HIV field, and how these aspects can be integrated into our programmes. There are always concerns when it comes to ‘integrating’ something, with questions such as “does this not just mean more work?”. This handbook is designed to highlight feasible ways of integrating SRHR and MNCH into HIV programmes. This is not a small task, but we should bear in mind that the HIV epidemic calls for strong and innovative action, and that by integrating SRHR and MNCH we have the potential to reduce the impact this disease is having on communities in Zambia.

Policy Brief: Crimininalisation of HIV Transmission in southern Africa: Fueling the HIV epidemic, SAfAIDS, 2009

Since the advent of HIV, there has been intense debate on what constitutes the most effective HIV prevention approach that governments should adopt. Striking a balance between public health and human rights approaches to addressing HIV have often been at the centre of such debates... Legislators in some countries have called for HIV-specific criminal laws as a means of protecting women from HIV infection, but the irony is that sometimes such laws may result in women being disproportionately prosecuted, since due to antenatal testing, women are more likely to be tested first.
