Abstract

"There are clear interactions between reproductive health and HIV/AIDS, most HIV infections being sexually transmitted or associated with pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. In addition, reproductive ill-health and HIV/AIDS share root causes, including poverty, gender inequality and social marginalization of the most vulnerable populations. There is evidence of important synergies between reproductive health and HIV prevention, care and treatment interventions. Forging closer linkages between these programme areas should result in significant public health benefits and is necessary in order to attain international development goals and targets."
