Guidelines for Addressing HIV in Humanitarian Settings (2010 revision)

09 April 2010

In 2004, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) issued the guidelines Addressing HIV/AIDS Interventions in Emergency Settings to help guide those involved in emergency response, and those responding to the epidemic, to plan the delivery of a minimum set of HIV prevention, care and support interventions to people affected by humanitarian crises. This revised version of the guidelines, Addressing HIV in Humanitarian Settings, draws on the experiences of governments; UN, inter-governmental and nongovernmental organizations; and the Red Cross Red Crescent movement; and on recent developments in the field.
