HIV/AIDS and Livelihoods: Experiences in Mainstreaming from Malawi
The Shire Highlands Sustainable Livelihoods Programme has set out to modify its work to ensure that the most vulnerable in communities are not left out of development processes. It highlights the need to place HIV/AIDS and its effects at the centre of the development program to minimize its impact on people at the community level. It shares experiences of mainstreaming through interviews and shows the spin-offs of increased community mobilisation, and raises key issues for planners and policy makers.
