Our policy & advocacy program works to ensure that women and girls living with HIV/AIDS are an integral part of local, national, and global discussions about issues that affect their lives. Rarely do women and girls living with HIV/AIDS, particularly women of color, receive the opportunity to sit at policymaking tables. The absence of their voices is particularly alarming due to the great impact the disease has on women of color.
We have established a network of women living with HIV/AIDS to address this disparity. Encouraging, supporting, and mobilizing women and girls to become involved in advocacy, strengthens their collective voices.
To accomplish policy and advocacy-related goals, we capitalize on the strengths of women and connect them to policy makers, key decision-makers, and coalitions to effect change.
