Description :

In response to the growing body of evidence on violence and HIV & AIDS, and in response to calls by human rights advocates for effective action on these issues, international institutions and national governments have articulated a concern to address gender-based violence, including within the context of HIV&AIDS.

Little is known, however, about what is actually being done to address these issues in policies, programming and funding, and whether the efforts that are underway are truly based on the human rights and health agenda advocated for so long by women’s movements throughout the world. In order to better understand the level of resources – in policy, programming and funding – committed to this deadly intersection, this report was commissioned by an international coalition of organizations working on women’s human rights, development, health and HIV& AIDS.
