Positive Prevention: Prevention strategies for people living with HIV

This guide on positive prevention was developed to assist people living with HIV, service providers and policy makers to understand, promote and implement appropriate rights-based strategies for addressing the prevention needs of people living with HIV. The guide includes sections which focus on action points and provides useful information on key issues to consider when developing prevention programmes for people living with HIV.

The main audiences of this guide includes networks and organizations of people living with HIV, civil society organizations, health providers, programme managers, donors, United Nations agencies and government officials.

The information included in this guide intends to promote dialogue and discussion among people living with HIV, service providers, programme managers and policy makers on the key principles and issues to consider when developing programmes and strategies to address the prevention needs of HIV positive people. While there is wider recognition on the importance of linking prevention, treatment, care and support for people living with HIV, consensus has not been reached on the key elements of positive prevention. This guide intends to fi ll this gap by providing some ideas and concepts that can help to better understand the ingredients and operational principles to be considered when designing and implementing positive prevention programmes.

This guide was developed by the Family Planning Association of India (FPA India), and the Indian Network of People living with HIV (INP+) with support from the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Central Office and South Asia Regional Office. (2010)
