Keeping the Promise: An Agenda for Action on Women and AIDS

The Global Coalition on Women and AIDS was launched by UNAIDS in 2004 to respond to the increasing feminization of the HIV epidemic and a growing concern that existing AIDS strategies did not adequately address women’s needs. A loose alliance of civil society groups, networks of women living with HIV and United Nations agencies, the Coalition works at global and national levels to advocate for improved AIDS programming for women and girls. It focuses on several key issues: preventing new HIV infections by improving access to reproductive health care; promoting equitable access to HIV care and treatment; ensuring universal access to education; securing women's property and inheritance rights; reducing violence against women; ensuring that women’s care work is properly supported; advocating for increased research and funding for female-controlled HIV prevention methods; promoting women's leadership in the AIDS response.
