Guidance Note - Addressing HIV and AIDS
The vulnerabilities of people living with HIV are considerably exacerbated by the effects of humanitarian crises: HIV is an “emergency within the emergency”.
Food and nutrition insecurity is both a driver of the epidemic and a consequence of the impact of AIDS: it increases susceptibility to, transmissibility of, and exposure to HIV infection, as well as progression from HIV to AIDS.
Support to livelihoods, food security and nutrition can reduce people’s vulnerability to HIV infection (especially women and children), lessen the rate of progression of HIV to AIDS, and create a stable environment for Anti Retroviral Therapy.
FAO works closely with inter-agency teams at the global, regional and country level to adapt its programmes in light of the epidemic and to partner on joint HIV programmes.
