AIDS, poverty reduction and debt relief - a toolkit for mainstreaming HIV/AIDS programs into development instruments : SIDA, lutte contre la pauvrete et allegement de la dette - Module de formation sur l'integration des programmes de lutte contre le VIH/SIDA dans les instruments de developpement (Francês)

The report addresses the potential benefits of giving HIV/AIDS a prominent place in Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP), and Heavily Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) initiative agreements. It points at the need for greater political attention to, and increased domestic funding for the national HIV/AIDS programs, as well as a focus on achieving results in implementing a national HIV/AIDS program. But four key elements are necessary for a successful response to the epidemic: 1) a concerted effort to place the HIV/AIDS agenda into major development instruments; 2) a massive mobilization of additional resources; 3) a multisectoral approach, and, 4) a scaling up of interventions that are based on the best available evidence. It is therefore suggested that HIV/AIDS contents of PRSPs, and HIPC documents, include the epidemic as a cause of poverty - including poverty, and income inequality discussions - to form the basis for the main strategies in the national HIV/AIDS plan, short- and, medium-term goals, and, poverty monitoring indicators, that form agreements for debt relief. This toolkit will serve as a resource for training at the country, and sub-regional levels, and, enable country teams to develop useful materials on scaled-up HIV/AIDS programs for inclusion in the PRSPs, and HIPC documents.
