Regional workshop, 15th-16th July, Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania
Despite the multiple linkages between HIV/AIDS spread and the high prevalence rates of GBV through the world there have been very few programmatic efforts at the policy level to address these issues conjointly. For this reason, UNESCO has organized a workshop in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania to be held in July 2013. The workshop intended to address the linkages between GBV and HIV/AIDS in the Great Lakes region (including attention to situations of conflict and post-conflict), and to provide concrete policy recommendations for integrating national responses to both pandemics. The objective of this regional workshop was to discuss the links between gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV and AIDS in conflict and post-conflict situations in the Great Lakes Region. The discussions evolved around five country based reports that had been undertaken with the aim of providing concrete policy recommendations at national and regional levels, as well as examples of good practices and effective interventions that have been carried out in the region.
