HIV/AIDS, security and conflict

The interconnections between conflict and HIV/AIDS are more complex and less obvious than is often thought. HIV/AIDS affects the lives of many: those people caught up in conflict, those who are the protagonists in conflicts, and those whose role it is to provide security during and after conflict.

The AIDS, Security and Conflict Initiative (ASCI) undertook research over a number of years to examine the connections, to gather evidence and to advance analysis. This 32-page special FMR supplement presents a selection of the ASCI case-studies alongside a number of other articles on the subject – written by practitioners, policymakers and researchers – which were submitted in response to an FMR call for articles.

We would like to thank our Guest Editors, Pam Delargy of UNFPA and Jennifer Klot and
Dana Huber of SSRC, for all their work and assistance in the preparation and production
of this special supplement. We are grateful to both SSRC and UNAIDS for funding its production and dissemination.

The supplement is published in English and French, and is free of charge in print and online.

Please note that this special supplement will be distributed to our usual English and French mailing lists (with FMR 36 in November). If you usually receive FMR, you do not need to request it unless you require extra or multiple copies.

If you do not usually receive a print copy of FMR and would like to receive a copy for your organisation, or multiple copies for distribution to partners and policy/decision-makers or for use at conferences/workshops, please contact the Editors. We will need your full postal address and details of how many copies (in which language/s) you require.
While we want to share the contents of this issue as widely as possible, we ask you to think carefully about how many print copies you need; please remember that it is available online, that print copies can be shared, and that printing and postage use up more resources than purely money. 

We encourage you to circulate or reproduce any articles in their entirety but please cite

Please see information about future issues of FMR.
