One Step Further - Responses to HIV/AIDS

13 Mar 2003

  • Author(s): Anne Sisask


How can we both "scale-up" and "scale-out"—broaden—our responses to HIV/AIDS? Society’s responses to people living with HIV/AIDS and to the pandemic’s long-term impact on development need to be improved in terms of human rights, treatment, attitudes, financing, and the adoption of development plans and approaches that reduce vulnerability and offer hope for the future. Some issues need to emerge more clearly on the research agenda.

These are threads that run through the contributions in this anthology; a joint production between Sida and UNRISD. The authors cover multidimensional perspectives on HIV/AIDS, poverty and stigma. While they bring out the complexity of issues, they also point to tools and strategic measures that are within reach. Particular attention is given to locally directed responses to HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
