This fact sheet presents position of German Technical Cooperation (GTZ). To prevent further spread and to mitigate negative effects of epidemic, GTZ has begun to mainstream the response to HIV/AIDS as a cross-cutting issue that needs to be addressed by all sectors.

The first four sections of this fact sheet relates to the following questions: - The impact: How does HIV/AIDS affect the TEVT sector? - The comparative advantage: How can the TEVT sector in particular reduce vulnerability to HIV/AIDS and mitigate its impact? - The risk scenarios: How might TEVT contribute to the spread of HIV or aggravate its impact? - The GTZ approach: How can German development cooperation in the TEVT sector contribute to an effective response to HIV/AIDS?
