Sexual and Reproductive Health Needs of Women and Adolescent Girls living with HIV. Research Report on Qualitative Findings from Brazil, Ethiopia and the Ukraine is a document developed by EngenderHealth with the support of UNFPA. This research identified some interesting trends across the three countries and some issues unique to each setting that need to be considered in strategic planning efforts to improve HIV-positive women's and adolescent girl's access and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services. Research findings suggest that women and adolescents living with HIV face many challenges to exercising their rights. Limited access to information, counselling and services, poor quality or insufficient care, stigma and discrimination, gender inequalities, and often faltering community and family support are among the barriers which confront HIV positive women and adolescents.
