This tool helps programme managers and health-care providers in the public and private sectors integrate gender into HIV/AIDS programmes they wish to set up, implement and evaluate so they are more responsive to women's needs. It suggests practical actions to address key gender issues in four service delivery areas: 1. HIV testing and counseling; 2. prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV; 3. HIV/AIDS treatment and care; 4. home-based care and support for people living with HIV.
