Abstract: In 2001 UNAIDS initiated the development of a toolkit with techniques and practices for AIDS competence in consultation with the UNAIDS Secretariat, with the UN Theme Groups in different countries and members of the UNAIDS Technical Network on Local Responses to HIV/AIDS. The toolkit aims to further strengthen the capacity and competence of different actors to address HIV/AIDS at local level. Experiences worldwide contributed to the identification and selection of practices and techniques for the toolkit and they are meant for all with an interest in furthering local responses to HIV/AIDS. This document presents the techniques that have been contributed to the toolkit. It is available in print and on CD-ROM. “Part 2: Practices” contains 50 practices used to address one or more specific problems. The practices are grouped according to four categories: prevention, care and treatment, support and mitigation, and partnership and coordination.
