AIDS 2010: Integrating Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and HIV: Lessons from the Field

For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

At the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994, governments worldwide agreed that sexual and reproductive health and rights include HIV services. In the context of the HIV epidemic, full respect for all people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) is clearly fundamental and special attention to the most vulnerable groups imperative. Women, girls, sex workers, PLWHA, LGBT individuals and other key affected populations often face sexual and gender-based violence and SRHR violations, with undeniable consequences for the spread of HIV and provision of adequate care and treatment.
The panelists will give first-hand, concrete examples of integrated HIV and SRHR services in their context and speak from direct country experience, in generalized and concentrated epidemics. They will tell us how it was done, what they have learned, and what are the benefits and challenges of an integrated SRH/HIV service model for the populations they serve.
