HIV/AIDS Resource Guide for Extension Workers
The HIV/AIDS Resource Guide for Extension Workers was launched in Uganda on 18 August 2004. The guide has been developed in collaboration between the IP and the National Agricultural Advisory Services in Uganda (NAADS). The guide is meant as a tool for extension workers to better understand what impacts the HIV/AIDS epidemic has on the agricultural sector and rural livelihoods. Most importantly the Guide aims at increasing the uptake of appropriate responses to the epidemic by the agricultural sector as a whole, community extension workers, and the rural households involved in farming, fishing and livestock.
The impact of HIV/AIDS on rural livelihoods in Northern Province, Zambia (2004)
FAO, in close collaboration with Development Cooperation Ireland (DCI) and the Government of Zambia, has recently completed a household livelihood research among 740 households in the Northern Province of Zambia. The research aimed at gaining a better understanding of the dynamics in assets and livelihood strategies that are induced by the presence of HIV/AIDS and at identifying appropriate livelihood interventions for HIV/AIDS affected and vulnerable households.
Impacts of HIV/AIDS on agricultural production, food security and rural livelihoods in Namibia, Uganda and Zambia (4 reports published in 2003)
The relationships between HIV/AIDS, gender, food security and rural livelihoods, have been explored in detail by the IP in Namibia, Zambia and Uganda. The findings in the reports below show that the HIV/AIDS epidemic is slowly eroding food security, damaging rural livelihoods, exacerbating poverty and increasing gender inequalities. The reports further identify existing and potential coping strategies for mitigating the impacts, and recommends ways of adopting and supporting the most effective of these.
