Summary
In most societies, people living with HIV remain disproportionately poor, stigmatized and isolated from their communities. This situation limits the effectiveness of HIV prevention and treatment efforts and also hampers awareness and education campaigns. A project rolling out in rural Thailand, the Positive Partnerships Program (PPP) has shown that targeted economic assistance can boost self-esteem, ambition and hope-all of which help reinvigorate community ties and have a beneficial impact in promoting an enabling environment for HIV prevention and treatment efforts. This Best Practice document provides a short introduction to the program and examines how and why it may be used as a flexible and adaptive model in other countries.
