The Effect of Livelihoods Programs on Care Giving Roles in Households affected by HIV and AIDS

Some of the recommendations in this report are as follows: there is a need to increase the focus on advocacy for governments to ensure that all communities access their rights and entitlements for HIV prevention and AIDS treatment and care services as a human right. There is a need for a thorough analysis of national policies on the extent to which they tackle the right to health as a human entitlement for all irrespective of status. The enforcement of government regulations on private health providers to reduce on the burden of health access for hard to reach populations was emphasized. The need to strengthen the multi sectoral approach as the best way of addressing livelihoods for women; government ministries to operationalise their HIV and AIDS desks and provide budget allocations for training and capacity building for non health sector public workers on how to mainstream HIV and gender in their work.
