No one should ever be discriminated against because of their age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, language, health (including HIV) status, geographical location, economic status or migrant status, or for any other reason.

SAVE Toolkit (Second Edition)

The SAVE prevention methodology has been used and taught by INERELA+ for eight years and is finally available as a comprehensive toolkit. This toolkit systematically tackles the stigma, shame, denial, discrimination, inaction and misaction around HIV and AIDS, and comprehensively gives information related to HIV and methods of HIV transmission and how to mitigate these. A major challenge for faith leaders on HIV has been the lack of skills in addressing sex, sexuality and gender in their faith communities.

Our aim was to estimate the association between personal contact with PLHIV and HIV-related stigma among the general population of sub-Saharan Africa.

Yes
Author
UNICEF

Data tell us that the lives of girls today are better in many respects than those of preceding generations. Girls are now more likely to survive childhood, more likely to attend school and complete their education, less likely to be undernourished and less likely to marry as children. Yet girls still suffer significant deprivations and inequalities, many of which result from the persistent gender discrimination faced by girls and women everywhere.
