This qualitative study focuses on the experiences and perspectives of HIV-positive women living in Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

This publication expands upon the knowledge and data of HIV in the Pacific Islands Region as it explores the experiences of women living with HIV in Fiji and Papua New Guinea, the type of services that are available to these women, the impact of gender inequality on their lives and how to develop recommendations that will improve their access to services and prevent the spread of HIV.
