A quality education is essential for children, but for girls at risk of HIV, it is a necessary and lifesaving measure. Girls and young women across the world remain one of the most vulnerable populations for HIV.
Young women (15-24 years) in sub-Saharan Africa are eight times more likely to be living with HIV than their male counterparts. The time has come to think innovatively about how to reach young people and meet their needs.
For over two decades, women constitute the largest share of caregivers, community-level workers and volunteers who provide critical HIV prevention, treatment and support services both inside and outside their families.
