New York: UNIFEM, 2008. 68 p.
UNIFEM and the European Commission (EC) have been working in collaboration to prioritize gender equality in aid agendas and to get a clearer picture of the effect that HIV funding and policy have on women's lives, focusing in particular on the impact it has on ending violence against women and in improving women's sexual and reproductive health access and rights. This publication presents the key findings of the consultation; it highlights the need for a framework that links structural, social and individual determinants of gender inequality as well as presents opportunities (provided by the Paris Declaration) to strengthen the focus on intersections between HIV, violence against women, and sexual and reproductive health access and rights. The publication also underscores the need for comprehensive gender equality indicators for use in monitoring progress to meet key targets and goals outlined within the United Nations Declaration of Commitment on HIV and AIDS.
