Post-emergency Phase

In the post-emergency phase, relevant organizations and a range of refugee representatives will need to plan additional STI and HIV prevention and care strategies.18

The selection of interventions will depend on the type of setting (i.e., camp, non-camp or resettled area), and the degree of stability and security. Priorities will also be determined by the findings of the situation analysis, including the prevalence of HIV in the country of origin, host and refugee populations if known, the level and pattern of risk factors and the social services available. Interventions need to address the interacting factors that result in vulnerability to HIV: the coverage and quality of prevention, care and support services, individual behaviors and the social and cultural context.
