This Guidance Package is intended to help anyone concerned with public health and human rights – whether as a health professional, a policymaker or an advocate – to understand why and how to better meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of people living with HIV.
 
It shows that greater attention to sexual and reproductive health and rights is critical to the wellbeing of people living with HIV, making lives longer, healthier, more productive, and more satisfying. Attention to sexual and reproductive health and rights is also key to slowing the spread of the epidemic by preventing new infections. In both ways, individuals, families, and societies benefit.
