Linking HIV and women’s human rights
Clearly, HIV is much more than a health issue: it is a development issue, a human rights issue, a gender issue and an inequality issue. Tackling discrimination against women is central to the AIDS response. This is why the UNAIDS family has placed gender equality and human rights at the core of its work, as one of the three pillars of its Strategy for 2011-2015, which is based on the UNAIDS vision of three zeros – zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.
