Young women in their late teens and early twenties are especially susceptible to HIV infection in developing nations, as incidence of HIV is growing most rapidly among females aged 15–24 years. While prior research considers the role of various social and economic gender stratification measures to explain trends in the female HIV burden, the potential influence of unemployment has not yet been considered, nor has there been explicit focus on the empirical drivers of young women’s HIV.

Despite remarkable achievements in the prevention and treatment of HIV, this report finds that progress has been uneven globally. In 2015, more than half of the world’s new infections (1.1 million out of 2.1 million) were among women, children and adolescents, and nearly 2 million adolescents aged 10–19 were living with HIV. In sub-Saharan Africa, the region most impacted by HIV, three in four new infections in 15–19-year-olds were among girls.

Girls are counting on us to count them

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for action against the disadvantage and discrimination borne by girls. As we work towards this goal, ensuring that quality gender data is collected, analyzed, and used for decision making continues to be a challenge. The theme for this year's International Day of the Girl (October 11) is Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls. We cannot continue to promise a better, healthier world for girls if we cannot distinguish them in the data that drives our decision making.
