The Investment Framework

The investment framework takes as its starting point a human rights approach to the AIDS response, to ensure that it is universal, equitable, inclusive and fosters participation, informed consent and accountability. The framework makes a distinction between basic programme activities that have a direct effect on HIV risk, transmission, morbidity and mortality; the critical enablers that are crucial to the success of HIV programmes; and synergies with development sectors.

The implementation of the interventions and strategies outlined under this Framework are expected to contribute to the achievement of the outcome and impact targets and have been arrived at by considering the state of the epidemic in the country and the results of implementation efforts to the response thus far. The selection of the interventions and strategies is premised on the need to focus on high impact interventions, with special attention being paid to key populations.
