Strategy for prevention

Reproductive health is an important entry point for HIV prevention, which goes handin- hand with the prevention of other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

In 2001, UNFPA developed its strategic programming framework, with a focus on three core areas:

  • Preventing HIV infection in young people;


  • Condom programming;


  • Preventing HIV infection in pregnant women.

To create an enabling environment for action, UNFPA addresses a number of cross-cutting issues:

  • Mainstreaming gender concerns;


  • Population and development concerns;


  • Advocacy and partnerships;


  • Capacity building.

Activities are carried out in a variety of programme settings:

  • Emergency and conflict situations;


  • Maternal health;


  • Family planning;


  • STI and other reproductive health service delivery settings;


  • Informal settings to reach high-risk groups.


UNFPA Strategic Programming Framework for HIV Prevention:
The UNFPA strategy for HIV prevention revolves around three core areas: young people, condom programming and pregnant women, as illustrated in the UNFPA technical publication, Strategic Guidance on HIV Prevention.
