Considerations for developing a communication plan for HIV prevention and AIDS mitigation in Sub-Saharan Africa

Prepared by Sabine Michiels
in collaboration with
The Extension, Education and Communication Service
FAO Research, Extension and Training Division

Draft for Discussion

In view of its devastating impact, the AIDS epidemic has increasingly been regarded not only as a health problem but as a legitimate development issue. FAO perceives the HIV/AIDS pandemic as a problem of critical importance also for agriculture and food security.

These guidelines are a follow-up to an earlier paper titled: "Strategic approaches to HIV prevention and AIDS mitigation in rural communities and households in Sub-Saharan Africa". (FAO April 2001). They include a discussion of the steps towards the participatory, research-based development of a national communication plan for HIV prevention and AIDS mitigation.
