Social protection efforts have long served the most vulnerable people in many industrialized countries.

These efforts challenge stigma and discrimination and aim to transform the lives of vulnerable individuals. Over the long term, such efforts can also address many of the structural inequities that ultimately drive the HIV epidemic.
