Prevention: the successes and the challenges
by Dr Peter Deutschmann – University of Melbourne, Australia
This paper has been prepared for the Micah Network Conference 2002: Integral Mission and HIV/AIDS. It explores successes in HIV prevention based on sound evidence of what works. The conference presentation of this paper will focus more specifically on what works in HIV prevention among those most vulnerable to HIV infection, namely:
- People who in inject drugs
- Female sex workers and their clients, and
- Expectant mothers and their infants
For each of these groups challenges to future successful interventions are identified.
These will form the basis of exercises for group work following the presentation of this paper at the conference.
