  3. De l'impact du VIH/SIDA sur les familles/communautés rurales et de la necéssité de concevoir des stratégies multisectorielles en vue de prévenir la pandémie et d'en atténuer les effets dans les zones rurales

    Ce document passe en revue les publications disponibles sur les problèmes de VIH/SIDA quant à leurs effets sur les services de vulgarisation agricole. Il propose également des stratégies de vulgarisation agricole pour prévenir la maladie et en réduire l'impact sur les populations rurales, en collaboration avec les services techniques compétents. Toutefois, il relève que les connaissances en matière d'impact du VIH sur le développement agricole sont tirées d'études menées en Afrique de l'Est, de ce fait, les impacts pourraient être différents dans d'autres régions.
