HIV/AIDS and Conservation: Impacts and Ways to Reduce Them– A Fact Sheet for the Conservation Community

Fact sheet for the conservation community on the impacts of HIV/AIDS on conservation and ways to reduce these impacts. Originally developed for the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, in November 2004, the fact sheet which was updated in 2007 describes the impacts to conservation capacity, natural resources and land use. It describes what can be done such as steps involved in developing AIDS institutional policies, developing new training strategies, working with communities on resource management, and conducting research, communication and advocacy. The fact sheet also provides useful resources and websites on HIV/AIDS and conservation linkages.
