Join MEASURE Evaluation on August 23, 2018, at 9:00am EDT for a webinar sharing the results of a study on the characteristics of male sexual partners of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in Mozambique.
Men are a hot topic at AIDS 2018! As part of her presentation to kick off the PEPFAR pre-conference this past weekend, Ambassador Deborah Birx shared data highlighting that while recent progress has realized a 50% decline in HIV incidence, men were not equally represented in this achievement. Sunny Sharma echoed these findings in his pre-conference talk about the unique, complex challenges and perspectives of men regarding HIV status and disclosure, which are currently being explored by Ipsos Healthcare’s qualitative and ethnographic research in southern Africa.
While a considerable amount of information is available on the factors that contribute to HIV risk for adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in Mozambique, little is known about the characteristics of boys and men with whom AGYW engage in sexual activity and how AGYW form sexual partnerships.
It was estimated that 1.2 million people live with HIV/AIDS in Zambia by 2015. Zambia has developed and implemented diverse programs to reduce the prevalence in the country. HIV-testing is a critical step in HIV treatment and prevention, especially among all the key populations.
Many of the participants for Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) trainings come from a technical perspective. Whereas they might find theory interesting, they are most engaged when they have the opportunity to directly apply new knowledge to their current work.
This Good Practice Guide provides the rationale for gender-transformative programming, as well as tools to help civil society and community-based organisations, including Alliance Linking Organisations (LOs) and implementing partners, to integrate a gender perspective into their HIV programmes.
