Abstract
HIV/AIDS is not solely a health problem and to successfully address the pandemic, a gender perspective has to be mainstreamed into a broad-based and multisectoral response. This manual offers a number of case studies from developing and developed countries, which illustrate how programs that promote HIV prevention by addressing gender and the social and economic factors that increase people's risk of infection are more likely to succeed in changing behaviour. It also contains an extensive list of online resources. It is hoped that this co-publication will be used by development policymakers, planners, field staff and others addressing the HIV/AIDS pandemic from a gender-aware, multisectoral perspective.
