The Good Practice Guide on the Integration of HIV and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights brings together expertise from the Alliance global community, current research and other key external materials.
This guide contains information, strategies and resources which define Alliance Good Practice Programming Standards and guide programmers in the integration of HIV and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
The aim of this guide is to bring together good practice in four key areas:
- Community-based and owned approaches which put the most-affected people at the centre of the response
- Co-ordinating change at multiple levels to make an impact on HIV and SRH. These levels are:
- individuals, peers, relationships and households
- social attitudes, values and beliefs
- policies and structures
- Joined up approaches to SRHR and HIV
- Working together with the most affected people and tailoring programmes to address their specific needs.
The guide also aims to:
- provide a ‘road map’ for thinking through what we mean by good practice in integrating SRH, rights and HIV at different levels, assessing where we are now, and researching what further opportunities exist for mobilising communities and affected groups to bring about change
- show how civil society programmes can increase the capacity of communities, alongside government health systems and other partners, to bring about change at the four levels identified above
- share examples and lessons learned of how civil society organisations and community-based programmes from around the world have integrated components of SRH into their programmes
- provide links to other useful resources.
