Addressing the structural drivers of HIV: A STRIVE synthesis

The past two decades have seen significant progress in tackling HIV. Behavioural interventions have curbed rates of transmission. The scale up of HIV treatment has not only reduced levels of morbidity and mortality, but also created new opportunities for HIV prevention. However, mathematical modelling suggests that, with the current rate of antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation, 49 million more new HIV infections will occur by 2035, and that even at best, with 90 to 95% coverage, treatment will avert only 60% of new infections.

Impact case study: Informing programming to reduce the HIV risk of transactional sex

Transactional sexual relationships have been shown to increase the HIV risk faced by adolescent girls and young women. Too often, however, programming to address this risk is based on simplistic and misleading definitions of the practice and of what motivates girls and young women to engage in it. 

This Impact Case Study reports on the substantial progress that STRIVE has made towards achieving the strategic goal for the 'Transactional Sex' stream of work:
