The Operational Guide tries to make the relationship between gender, human rights and HIV/AIDS obvious to those working in the development sector. More than that, it seeks to give guidance to development programmers and practitioners on how to keep these complex linkages in mind when going about their daily business. The Operational Guide gives this support by providing a coherent conceptual framework and a set of guidelines/ checklists and tools. The checklists aim to provide HIV/AIDS programmers and other development practitioners with a tool to assess the extent to which their work contributes to gender equality. The tools are meant to help development programmers deepen their understanding of the linkages between gender, human rights and HIV/AIDS and respond strategically to these challenges. Of course, tools and techniques are hardly ever universally applicable. When applied in practice, the techniques and approaches presented in this Operational Guide have to be adapted to local circumstances.
