Consultation on Scaling up the Response to Gender-Based Violence in PEPFAR

From May 6-7 2010, AIDSTAR-One facilitated a “Consultation on Scaling up the Response to Gender-Based Violence in PEPFAR,” sponsored by the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) and the Gender Technical Working Group. At the meeting, Dr. Eric Goosby, Global AIDS Coordinator, announced a new women- and girl-centered, three-year, $30 million initiative to scale up multi-sectoral gender-based violence (GBV) programming in three countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, and Mozambique. Delegates from these countries, along with invited research, program, and GBV experts, exchanged recent research findings, promising practices, and emerging approaches. These conversations will not only inform and shape PEPFAR’s GBV responses in these three countries, but also in all of PEPFAR's other partner countries.
