How to "Invest for Future Generations" - Guidelines for Integrating HIV/AIDS in the Development Cooperation
November 2002, 58 pp

"The Swedish response to HIV/AIDS is described in the strategy "Investing in Future Generations" where the pandemic is seen as a fundamental issue for development co-operation and for poverty eradication. Both the causes and the consequences of the epidemic reaches far beyond the health sector and includes all areas of society. This multisectorial view on the epidemic means that HIV/AIDS has to be considered in all development co-operation. Sida has therefore developed a set of tools, firstly a manual for the analysis and consideration of HIV/AIDS in the country strategy and secondly a series of guidelines for the use of Sida staff and collaborators in the identification, monitoring and evaluation of projects and programs. These guidelines have been developed with the assistance of the consultancy firm SODECO, and in close collaboration with the relevant departments/divisions at Sida. They should not be seen as the final manual on how to integrate HIV/AIDS into the different sectors but rather as an instrument to initiate and stimulate a concrete discussion on what this integration means in practice when we work with the project cycle in the different sectors."
