Policy through Prevention of HIV Transmission

The key advocacy issues in the development of a prevention policy are - 

  • Socio-legal issues relating to the access of minors to condoms and education about sexuality;
  • Engaging parents and faith-based schools and communities in prevention initiatives such as abstinence and condom access;
  • Removing social and legal barriers to same-sex relationships among men which drive the MSM community underground and influence poor propitiation of male prevention initiatives;
  • Policies in support of positive prevention;
  • Decriminalisation and reducing or removing vulnerabilities relating to sex work; 
  • Access to life and health insurance by persons newly diagnosed with HIV; and
  • Access to prevention methods by legal and illegal migrants.

All partners are asked to be fully engaged in advancing advocacy at the national and regional levels. Seed funding is available to support the advocacy efforts outlined above.
