  4. A manual for integrating gender into reproductive health and HIV programs: From commitment to action

    Ce Manuel vise principalement à contribuer à la conception et à l’exécution de programmes dans le domaine de la Santé Reproductive et du VIH/SIDA qui intègrent des approches de nature à parvenir à l’équité/l’égalité des genres.

  9. Gender-based violence in sub-Saharan Africa: a review of demographic and health survey findings and their use in national planning

    Gender-based violence (GBV) is a pervasive human rights issue with public health consequences. The growing body of evidence on violence and HIV/AIDS continues to confirm that violence is a lead factor in the 'feminization' of the global AIDS epidemic and the disproportionately higher rates of HIV-infection among women and girls, who now represent at least half of those infected worldwide and about 60% of those infected in sub-Saharan Africa. The main purposes of this desk review are to: 1. …
