There is now strong evidence of the importance of structural drivers of the HIV-epidemic. As a result, increasing interest has focused on social protection as a possible solution to prevention. But questions and debates continue:
- Should cash transfers be unconditional or conditioned?
- Are cash transfers enough or do we need 'cash plus care'?
- How do biomedical interventions work with social protection?
- How are we going to pay for social protection?
- Can social protection address new challenges such as ART and PMTCT
The webinar presents some of the latest evidence in this area and proposes ways to approach these questions. As well as a video, a PDF of the presentation can be downloaded.
