Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention - Operational Guidelines

02 September 2013

Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention was developed for and by people living with HIV based on numerous consultations at the global, regional and national levels. It articulates the next stage in the HIV response, where people living with HIV are at the centre and services offered in an environment that is supportive to meet all the needs of people living with HIV and their families. Instead of being regarded by “positive prevention” programmes as mere recipients of care and vessels of a virus that needs to be contained, people living with HIV embrace a new paradigm where they are actively involved as part of the solution to the epidemic and not seen as part of the problem.
