Description :

This publication highlights the urgent need to identify, test and implement effective strategies that address violence against women in conflict settings. Included in these strategies is the need to integrate programmes that address violence against women, HIV prevention and AIDS treatment and care in conflict settings. The challenges of doing this are enormous, as immediate needs for food, shelter and security often take precedence over other health concerns in conflict settings.
