Lori Heise and Charlotte Watts STRIVE and AIDSTAR-One, 2013; Read full paper online

This paper examines evidence linking structural factors to HIV risk. It addresses research gaps, including the pathways through which factors affect HIV vulnerability and interaction among such factors. Advantages of taking a 'structurally informed' approach to HIV planning and implementation include influencing clustered risk factors and multiple outcomes, and opportunities for co-financing.

This is one of a set of five position papers co-commissioned by STRIVE and AIDSTAR-One to address critical issues within the field of structural interventions. The series was launched at a panel presentation hosted by PEPFAR in Washington, DC on 11 September 2013 (selected presentations are available to download here).
