Policy Brief 16 - Income generation and sustainable livelihoods for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS

The global financial and economic crisis threatens to reverse the gains made in HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support programmes in many middle and low income countries. The Global Jobs Pact (GJP) addresses the social and employment impacts of the international financial and economic crisis. This Pact calls for workplace programmes on HIV/AIDS as part of an effective crisis response and advocates for a social protection floor, to facilitate access to basic social services and income transfers for the poorest.
