Becoming Properly Comprehensive: Engaging with ‘Structure’ in HIV Prevention

Responding to UNAIDS calls for comprehensive prevention in order to arrest and turn back the HIV epidemic, this paper considers the benfits as well as the difficulties of adopting a structural approach to HIV prevention. It considers the importance of moving beyond some of the strategies employed in the past to engage with the conditions that make it hard for individuals and communities to act on the basis of what they know.
