United Nations Trust to End Violence Against Women
In 2005, the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, with support from Johnson & Johnson, opened a special funding window for the 2005-2008 programming period to address the intersection of violence against women and HIV/AIDS. Through this funding window, the UN Trust Fund made grants to a unique cohort of grantees in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean to support programmes aimed at reducing violence against women and its consequent risks for HIV/AIDS as well as to reduce the violence, stigma, and discrimination that women living with HIV/AIDS face. The purpose of this paper is to present the findings of this initiative, in particular to explore the context in which cohort projects sought to implement integrated HIV/violence programming, to highlight promising approaches, and to make recommendations for future programming in this area.
