AUTHOR: International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region
The Continuum is a tool to investigate how gender responsive an organization's HIV/AIDS services and prevention programs are and whether they utilize a rights-based approach to sexual and reproductive health. Programs that fall to the left of the Continuum are ripe for a substantial overhaul while programs that fall in the middle are moving in the gender-sensitive direction and would benefit from an internal commitment to continue growth in this direction. Programs that fall to the right are model programs and may be able to produce best practices document or otherwise share their experiences in this area.
