Step it up: Making HIV & SRHR integration a reality

June 28, 2015

Invitation to a Share-Net International thematic meeting at the AIDS IMPACT conference in Amsterdam on July 30, 2015.

Linking HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights refers to joined work in these two sectors at various levels, including policy, advocacy, programming and operations. Despite high-level political commitment to intensify linkages, challenges remain for ensuring that people receive comprehensive, high-quality services because policies are not being translated into practice. 

Linking HIV and SRHR must go beyond integrating services and programmes to include explicit attention to rights and the structural issues that make people vulnerable to HIV and threaten their sexual and reproductive wellbeing. Linking HIV and SRHR can deliver a more robust and cost-effective response, and should be an integral part of the post 2015 agenda.

This satellite session at the AIDS IMPACT conference is organised by Share-Net International, Dance4Life, PSI Europe, STOP AIDS NOW!, GNP+, Rutgers and Share-Net Netherlands.  Please find here the invitation for download. Registration is required, however note that it is not necessary to be registered for the full AIDS IMPACT conference to attend this session.
