This framework proposes a set of key policy and programme actions to strengthen linkages between sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS programmes. These linkages work in both directions, by integrating HIV/AIDS issues into ongoing sexual and reproductive health programmes, and conversely, sexual and reproductive health issues into HIV/AIDS programmes. This should enhance sexual and reproductive health, contribute to reversal of the AIDS epidemic and mitigate its impact.
