Structural drivers, interventions, and approaches for prevention of HIV in general populations

Justin Parkhurst STRIVE and AIDSTAR-One , 2013; Read full paper online

Lessons from the past 30 years point to three key objectives for behaviour-change HIV prevention efforts:

  1. address the broader structures shaping behavioural risk and vulnerability
  2. tailor responses to the factors affecting the target population's vulnerability
  3. ensure that multiple factors can be addressed when needed

This paper provides definitions of key terms and concepts to help in the operationalization of such approaches.

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).
