News: Global Review of HIV/AIDS Treatment Access for Women

UN Women has commissioned a global review of HIV/AIDS Treatment Access for Women. This review seeks to identify key gaps related to women’s access to treatment and understand the barriers women face in the pathway to accessing treatment and care.

AVAC, ATHENA and Salamander Trust have been selected to coordinate this review.

We seek to study the impact of structural and social factors (at national policy, service delivery, community, socio-cultural and individual levels) on women’s access to treatment. There are gaps in knowledge in access for women and girls living with HIV, in all their diversity, that we hope to inform. We aim to provide information and recommendations that will be critical to realizing many of the individual and public health benefits of effective long-term quality HIV care, treatment access and coverage.
