This information kit presents guidelines for incorporating HIV response in emergency situations. An emergency is defined as a situation that threatens the lives and well being of a large number of a population, including natural causes such as hurricanes, droughts, earthquakes, and floods, or armed conflict. The monograph explains the reasons for including HIV interventions in that the conditions that exist in an emergency such as conflict, social instability, poverty, and powerlessness are also conditions that help spread HIV/AIDS and other STDS. The guidelines present the minimum required actions needed to manage HIV/AIDS in the response to the crisis and shows the interaction between different sectors. The CD-ROM contains many of the articles, documents, and training materials mentioned in the monograph. It also includes links to organizations and other resources.
