Support to Mainstreaming AIDS in Development

UNAIDS: The growing understanding of this two-way relationship between AIDS and development has led to the insight that, in addition to developing programmes that specifically address AIDS, there is a need to strengthen the way in which existing development programmes address both the causes and effects of the epidemic in each country-specific setting. The process through which to achieve this is called "Mainstreaming AIDS".

UNAIDS proposes the following working definition: “Mainstreaming AIDS is a process that enables development actors to address the causes and effects of AIDS in an effective and sustained manner, both through their usual work and within their workplace.” (UNAIDS Secretariat: Strategy Note and Action Framework 2004-2005)
