ICW Calls on You to Support Women-led Powerful Advocacy

Dear Friend,

We need your help.

Since the International Community of Women living with HIV Global Office opened its doors in Nairobi in 2014, we have made an unparalleled impact on the HIV response: empowering networks of women living with HIV, developing advocates and undertaking strategic advocacy. Here are just a few of our advocacy successes:

  • Ensuring a gender responsive UNAIDS Strategic Plan;
  • Strongly influencing the outcomes of the UN High Level Meeting on AIDS;
  • Developing a 'first-of-its-kind' human rights tool for WHO eMTCT Validation;
  • Producing joint research on Early Infant Diagnosis that spurred clarification of WHO breastfeeding recommendations;
  • Preparing networks of women living with HIV to engage in Global Fund processes and Sustainable Development Goal Implementation at country level;
  • Supporting the advocacy and activism of younger women living with HIV through the Chapter of Young Women, Adolescents and Girls (CYWAG);
  • Strengthening the movement globally through Love Positive Women;
  • Strengthening and collaborating with ICW’s ten regional networks as well as CYWAG and Indigenous ICW;
  • Working with key populations to push back against stigma and discrimination within the HIV movement and beyond.

ICW has proven that a relatively small investment in networks of women living with HIV pays double dividends in achieving an effective rights-based HIV response.

We continue to build on ICW’s 25-year legacy of powerful advocacy by women living with HIV. This year we seek to raise $50,000 USD before the end of 2016 to help us meet critical funding needs and continue to deliver powerful advocacy with impact.

Which is where your help can make all the difference. Your investment in the success of the network at this crucial time will amplify our impact and improve the lives of women and girls living with HIV.
