Lessons from the past 30 years point to three key objectives for behaviour-change HIV prevention efforts:

- tailor responses to the factors affecting the target population's vulnerability
- ensure that multiple factors can be addressed when needed
This paper provides definitions of key terms and concepts to help in the operationalization of such approaches.
