This findings paper reports the initial findings from HIV/AIDS: The Creative Challenge, a project which is developing reflective discussion with field practitioners and policy makers on the value of cultural approaches to HIV and AIDS. It provides an introductory analysis of the concept of culture, looks at examples and success stories of effective application of cultural approaches to HIV and AIDS communication, and sets out the terms of the debate around culture in the context of the current international HIV and AIDS strategy.
