Webinar: Community Research For Global Policy Reform and National Action

Event date: 09-Jul-2018

Research has shown that although a scale up of healthcare services has been recorded, women living with HIV still face major barriers when it comes to accessing Sexual and Reproductive Health and rights services, at the same time facing stigma and discrimination and violence in their surrounding homes, communities and even within facilities. This saw a need to create a consolidated guideline to ensure that policy and programming consider the diversity of women living with HIV as well as the challenges they face within their communities, to create an enabling environment for proper access to SRHR services.

In April 2018 Salamander Trust launched a generic Checklist, with financial support from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and with wider advisory and collaborative support from global, regional and national networks of women living with HIV. The Checklist supports community advocacy to advance the full implementation of the 2017 WHO Consolidated Guideline on the SRHR of women living with HIV.

ICW, on behalf of UNAIDS and WHO, together with civil society partners would like to invite you to a Webinar on Community Research For Global Policy Reform and National Action.
