"This book is written for policy-makers, managers, and programme staff in development and humanitarian organisations, to promote debate about the changes that need to be made to their programmes if they are to work effectively in a world which has been changed for ever by the pandemic of AIDS. It is not concerned with AIDS-specific interventions such as home-based care, counselling and testing, condom promotion, or AIDS education. It is about adapting mainstream development and humanitarian work to create a holistic response to the impact of AIDS on poor and marginalised communities. It also addresses the need to modify internal human-resource policies to protect employees and the on-going work of any organisation operating in AIDS-prone contexts. The text is based on case studies drawn from the experiences of ActionAid, Oxfam GB, Save The Children, and their partners; on insights contributed by other agencies; and on information gathered from websites and published papers, reports, and books."
