  IASC Guidelines for Addressing HIV in Humanitarian Settings
IASC - 2009
These Guidelines target authorities, personnel and organisations operating in emergency settings at international, national and local levels. The Guidelines seek to enable governments and cooperating agencies (such as UN Agencies and NGOs) to deliver the minimum required multi-sectoral response to HIV/AIDS during the early phase of emergency situations.

  Guidance on HIV in education in emergencies

The purpose of this tool is to provide guidance to education project officers and cluster staff assisting local education authorities working to mainstream issues related to HIV and sexual and reproductive health (SRH). It suggests ways in which education in emergencies can contribute to: 1) reducing the number of new HIV infections; and 2) mitigating the impact of HIV and AIDS for those infected with and affected by the virus.
