People affected by or living with HIV face risks which secure livelihood can enable them to avoid. At-risk groups, and the type of risks, differ between locations and over time. Opportunities to (re)build livelihoods are also diverse and context-specific. Supportive policies and programs must be responsive to these differences and to people’s and communities’ innovative capacities. This presentation assesses how five Ethiopian NGOs, engaged in strengthening livelihoods in communities confronting HIV in different parts of the country, identified at-risk groups and priorities for livelihood support, identified modalities of provided support, and responded flexibly to the needs.
