Women’s rights are essential to the response to HIV and specific efforts are needed to ensure that they are integral in all HIV work. The Women’s programme will contribute to campaigning, advocacy and mobilisation towards achieving Universal Access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for women and girls.
Juliana Davids, the new Women’s Campaign Coordinator, started 1 July 2010 and will be working in close partnership with women’s rights organisations to ensure that key issues, such as sexual and reproductive health and rights, violence against women and comprehensive sexuality education, are included in approaches to HIV. The programme will also seek to foster collaboration/partnerships between the HIV and women’s movements. Through various initiatives, the programme will strive to address the real realities needs of women in the response to HIV, with a human rights based approach.
The framework of the programme was developed in consultation with eleven partner organisations.
