This paper reviews the process of developing Uganda's Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP), and specifically considers how HIV and AIDS issues were incorporated into the development of the plan. It describes each of the 'entry points' for HIV and AIDS issues, such as community mobilisation, leadership and advocacy, impact mitigation, and ARVs. The 'lessons learned' section focuses on strategic responses that DFID can support to ensure that HIV is effectively mainstreamed within Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers
