HIV and AIDS in Emergency Situations

Research reports

Written by Fiona Samuels, Paul Harvey

This paper focused on the evidence base relating to HIV in emergencies, rather than responses by international aid agencies. Findings identify some interesting trends, differing across the types of emergency settings, but epidemiological data were not the focus of the research. With regard to vulnerabilities, this research looked mainly at the impact of different emergencies on HIV risk behaviour and not at confirmed new HIV infections, which would require a different research methodology.
