  4. An action guide for gender equality in national HIV plans: catalyzing change through evidence-based advocacy

    A growing body of evidence links HIV risk with women's social and economic inequality, male norms that drive sexual risk, and the social marginalization of individuals whose sexual identity or behavior is perceived to fall outside accepted norms. In recognition of this, many international donor agencies are funding programs that aim to reduce gender inequality as a driver of the epidemic. HIV service providers are already responding with innovative and often courageous strategies for overcoming gender-based drivers of the epidemic. But more is needed at the national level. …

The report focuses on six areas of action: prevention, treatment, caregiving, education, violence and womenÆs rights. Each section outlines key issues and offers examples of where women are leading the way to combat these problems. …

  8. Tackling political barriers to end AIDS

    In 2005, a quarter of a century into the pandemic, governments seemed on the verge of concerted action to end AIDS, as they finally promised to strive towards universal access to prevention, treatment and care by 2010. However, two years later there is still no financing plan to achieve universal access; clinics and hospitals are still starved of nurses and supplies; 90% of children in need are still not getting social support and the cost of much needed new drugs and diagnostics is unaffordable. …
