Top Ten Wins 2010 #7: UN Provides Governments A Woman-Centered Plan To Prevent HIV Infections

Every year we do a list of Top Ten Wins for women’s health and rights. Check out all 10 on the blog, or download here.

Early this year, UNAIDS released guidelines to help governments better prevent new HIV infections among women and girls.  The UNAIDS Agenda for Women and Girls contains possible actions for AIDS programs to choose from, according to their local contexts, that protect women’s human rights within the context of HIV/AIDS; to invest HIV/AIDS funds nationally in integrated sexual and reproductive health services; and to provide comprehensive sexuality education, among others.

What’s next: IWHC is working with local organizations, governments, and donors in South Africa, Peru, and Nigeria to accelerate implementation of this Agenda. IWHC’s local partners are working tirelessly to ensure equal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support for women and young people.
