Five UN Leaders to Champion Girls Education & Empowerment

06 November 2020

UNAIDS, UN Women, UNICEF, UNESCO and UNFPA have launched an Education plus initiative. When girls stay and finish secondary school, the chance of getting HIV is reduced by 50%. Yes, 50%. And if you add in more interventions on women’s empowerment, you reduce it even further. So this initiative is to persuade governments to invest in secondary education for girls and to support them with more initiatives to make the school space more empowering for them.
