Will You Help Women Stop HIV in Cameroon?

Written By: Lisa Pertoso
November 30, 2011


IWHC is participating in the GlobalGiving Foundation’s Open Challenge – we must raise at least $4,000 from 50 donors by December 31st, which will go to support SWAAC in Cameroon, West Africa.

SWAAC works to promote and distribute female condoms for free. Female condoms are the only woman-controlled method that prevents both HIV and unwanted pregnancy.

“As a young woman, today I know to not always just trust someone who tells me he is faithful, but to be prudent because HIV isn’t written on people’s faces.  I discuss sexuality with my peers and always tell them that before any sexual act that must require that their partner use a condom.  At SWAAC I saw and touched a female condom for the first time.  Today I go out with other peer educators to promote information in the community about HIV prevention.  I am sure of myself because SWAAC taught me not only to work on my self-esteem, but also how to communicate better with my friends.”

– Helene, volunteer for the Society for Women and AIDS in Africa-Cameroon (SWAAC), our long-time partner

If we meet our goal, IWHC will earn a permanent spot on GlobalGiving’s website, where we have the potential to benefit from corporate relationships, exposure to a new donor network, and access to dozens of online fundraising tools.

Will you help IWHC and SWAAC reach the threshold of $4,000 from 50 donors? Please make a donation here today.

Even a small amount can make a big difference – just $10 helps to buy 700 female condoms. Not only will your gift help women in Cameroon but it will help us take advantage of a long-term fundraising opportunity.

This month we’ll be blogging about SWAAC and advocacy around female condoms.

And help us spread the word! Please share this opportunity with your friends and family and encourage them to give to the campaign.

    The environment is often cited as an important factor influencing the health status of individuals. This includes characteristics of the natural environment, the built environment, and the social environment. Factors such as clean water and air, adequate housing, and safe communities and roads all have been found to contribute to good health, especially the health of infants and children.

    Hedge funds represent a different way of managing money with generally low correlations to equity and debt investments. Adding them to a portfolio of stocks and bonds is likely to reduce overall portfolio risk.

    A donation may take various forms, including cash offering, services, new or used goods including clothing, toys, food, and vehicles.

  9. Hedge funds employ a wide range of trading strategies but classifying them is difficult due to the rapidity with which they change and evolve. However, hedge fund strategies are generally said to fall into four main categories: global macro, directional, event-driven, and relative value (arbitrage).

  11. Conflict of laws (or "private international law" in civil law countries) concerns which jurisdiction a legal dispute between private parties should be heard in and which jurisdiction's law should be applied. Today, businesses are increasingly capable of shifting capital and labour supply chains across borders, as well as trading with overseas businesses, making the question of which country has jurisdiction even more pressing. Increasing numbers of businesses opt for commercial arbitration under the New York Convention 1958
