Description :

Global health, development, and gender are now understood to be dynamic and interlinked components of U.S. foreign policy. Given the emerging policy and programmatic debates on how these three domains are to be integrated to bring the greatest returns, especially in improving the health and welfare of women and girls, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center hosted a conference entitled “Linkages between Gender, AIDS, and Development: Implications for U.S. Policy” on June 11, 2010. The conference brought civil society activists from South Africa, Zambia, Kenya, and the United States together with representatives from international nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations, and U.S. officials from the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the State Department’s Office of Global Women’s Issues, and the Congress.
