This document is an appeal to strengthen the global response to HIV/AIDS and improve sexual and reproductive health and rights, by taking systematic action to maximise synergy in response to these intimately linked issues. It calls on governments, international agencies, donors and NGOs to increase global commitment and momentum, strengthen the evidence base for synergy between the two areas, use existing mechanisms to maximise synergy and deal with barriers, establish a global task force to review legislation, policy, regulation and practice, strengthen capacity, and promote partnership between relevant organizations. Case studies are used to illustrate the points made.
