Description :

This Report provides new evidence and offers recommendations for actions on the links between security, conflict, peacebuilding and HIV. Particular attention is paid to, inter alia, the link between violence against women, forced sex and the increased risk of HIV and the role that laws and law enforcement practices play in criminalizing the acts and activities of those groups who are habitually more vulnerable to the exposure of HIV. Findings from 29 studies, engaging partners in 17 different countries demonstrate the diverse impacts HIV has on security as well as how security crises and security institutions can influence HIV incidence.
