HIV and AIDS: What are the Implications for Humanitarian Action

Page history last edited by EEM 9 years ago


Bibliographic information:


Harvey, Paul. 2003. HIV/AIDS: What are the Implications for Humanitarian Action? A Literature Review. Draft. London: Humanitarian Policy Group, Overseas Development Institute. 




The presence of HIV/AIDS in an emergency situation has been found to increase vulnerability to risk across the livelihoods spectrum.  For this reason, the author sought to review the literature on HIV/AIDS, food security, and humanitarian action to determine how aid organizations can most effectively take HIV/AIDS into account in the development of their emergency relief programs.  Over 80 references are listed.  This literature review served as a background paper for HPG research report no. 16 on "HIV/AIDS and Humanitarian Action" (available at http://www.odi.org.uk/hpg/papers/hpgreport16.pdf).
