Protocol 9. Support for sexual and reproductive health in people living with HIV/AIDS




As the health and well-being of people living with HIV (PLHIV) improve due to antiviral treatment (ART), it has become necessary to reconsider many previous policies concerning their sexuality and reproduction. A rights-based approach to caring for their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) is needed to:

  • empower them as individuals;
  • ensure that they consider themselves capable of healthy and satisfying sexual lives through the effective management of their HIV infection; and
  • address other SRH concerns effectively.
