HIV, Sexuality and youth: Linking HIV and reproductive and sexual health and rights
Bern, 7th April 2011
UNAIDS, the International AIDS Society, the Global Fund and other international bodies are aware of the need of better integration of HIV/AIDS, reproductive and sexual health and rights and other key health priorities. At the local level, many NGOs allready work in an integrated way. However, many challenges emerge: If HIV prevention and care are integrated into reproductive health services and family planning clinics, how will groups most at risk such as young girls and boys, MSM, sexworkers etc. be reached? How can the sexual and reproductive health needs of women and young girls living with and affected by HIV/AIDS be addressed?
