Policy and programmatic issues
Sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS: a framework for priority linkages
This framework proposes a set of key policy and programme actions to strengthen linkages between sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS programmes. These linkages work in both directions, by integrating HIV/AIDS issues into ongoing sexual and reproductive health programmes, and conversely, sexual and reproductive health issues into HIV/AIDS programmes. This should enhance sexual and reproductive health, contribute to reversal of the AIDS epidemic and mitigate its impact.
Asia-Pacific operational framework for linking HIV/STI services
This document provides guidance to countries for the strengthening of linkages between reproductive health and the prevention and management of HIV and other STIs. Particular emphasis is placed on linkages that will improve HIV/STI prevention and outcomes, and allow reproductive health services to benefit from the strengthening occurring in HIV/STI programmes. Lessons learnt and future directions appropriate to the Asian region are cited.
