Structural Drivers, Interventions, and Approaches for Prevention of HIV in General Populations

By Justin Parkhurst

The lessons of the past 30 years of the fight against the HIV epidemic have pointed to three key objectives that future behaviour change based HIV prevention efforts must work to achieve: 1) to address broader structures shaping behavioural risk and vulnerability; 2) to tailor responses to the factors influencing risk and vulnerability understood to affect the target population; and 3) to ensure multiple factors can be addressed when needed. This paper provides definitions of key terms and concepts to help in the operationalization of such approaches.
