This report is a synthesis of the key insights, questions, challenges and recommendations that emerged from a meeting held to explore emerging insights into the linkages between economic empowerment and HIV outcomes for girls and your women.

The report also summarizes general principles that should apply to programs and policies aiming to address the vulnerability of girls in a context of poverty and HIV.
