HIV Prevention That Works for Women and Girls

Globally women and girls in all our multiplicities continue to be vulnerable to HIV acquisition and remain disproportionately affected by HIV and AIDS in many regions particularly sub Saharan Africa.

A new brief has been released that acts as the beginning of a joint effort to highlight the specific preventions needs and rights of women and girls in all our diversities.

ICW, through collaboration with the Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP), The International Network of People who use drugs (INPUD) and the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) has prepared this brief.

In a quote from the brief, the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW) states “Together, in solidarity we seek to present insights on HIV prevention that works for women and girls in order to contribute towards the achievement of Global HIV Prevention targets and improve the quality of lives for women living with HIV and our communities.”
