What works to tackle structural drivers of HIV? How can this evidence inform policy making and programme implementation? This session synthesizes evidence on structural drivers of HIV, including findings from studies conducted as part of the STRIVE research consortium. Policy makers, implementers, civil society advocates, and researchers will lead a series of panel discussions on ways to tackle structural drivers that impact on: Sustainable Development Goals to achieve multiple benefits; the delivery of biomedical prevention technologies, including pre-exposure prophylaxis; and the sexual health of adolescent girls and young women. Themes related to HIV risk will include addressing alcohol, gender inequality, social norms, intimate partner violence, stigma, and transactional sex. The panel members will debate evidence on a new cofinancing model for multiple-benefit interventions. Delegates will receive evidence briefs, technical summaries, and guidance on measuring structural drivers. This session is designed for policy makers, implementers, civil society advocates, and researchers.
