Description :

The ALIV[H]E Framework is a UNAIDS commissioned consortium in partnership with Salamander Trust, ATHENA, AIDS Legal Network, Project Empower, University of Kwazulu-Natal and HEARD. Implementing and research partners for this Framework spanned across Kenya, India, Malawi, South Africa, South Sudan and Zimbabwe. Despite the growing body of evidence linking VAW and HIV, very few programmatic frameworks exist to address this intersection.

The ALIV[H]E Framework was developed to support NGO’s to strengthen responses and widen the evidence base on ‘what works’ to reduce VAW in the context of HIV. The Framework reframes the hierarchy of evidence as there is lots of existing gray literature which tells us about how and why to address VAW and HIV. The Framework considers a comprehensive research matrix including qualitative, quantitative, participatory, formal and informal research. The core values of the Framework include human rights, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), gender equality and equity, respectful diversity, safety, meaningful participation and evidence-informed interventions.
