Terence Smith
PDF, 2007

This guide locates a developmental perspective on HIV/AIDS within the context of housing and human settlements development. The document explains the ways in which human living environments have implications for the spread and management of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, as well as how HIV/AIDS affects many of the underlying assumptions and practical considerations involved in the development of sustainable human settlements. Beyond explaining the relationship between HIV/AIDS and housing and human settlements development, the guide provides practical guidelines on what integrating HIV/AIDS means for the day-to-day work of various actors involved in human settlements development processes.
