This toolkit adds to the knowledge base to support analysts and decision-makers in their work to mainstream HIV/AIDS as a major item on countries' development agenda, and mobilize the resources needed to expand promising interventions and approaches in the fight against the epidemic. The toolkit offers a unifying framework for analysing HIV/AIDS in the context of PRSPs, as well as examples of how the issue has been treated in the first generation of PRSPs, interim PRSPs and debt relief agreements. It gives country officials and their partners highly relevant information that they can use in developing inputs for similar documents in their own countries. [adapted from Foreword]
