Addressing gender norms and inequities is essential to reducing HIV risk, mitigating its impact, and increasing access to services for men and women. On behalf of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the United Sates Agency for International Development (USAID), AIDSTAR-One promotes the integration of gender throughout prevention, care, and treatment programs.
AIDSTAR-One/India provided knowledge management and technical assistance support to India’s National AIDS Control Program (NACP) at national and state levels as well as to the US Government PEPFAR team.
In Latin America & the Caribbean, HIV prevention for sexually diverse populations, including transgender populations and men who have sex with men (MSM), is made significantly more difficult by societal norms that stigmatize same-sex sexual activity and favor conformity to strict gender roles. AIDSTAR-One has been exploring the factors that increase the vulnerability of these key populations; their health care needs; the availability of prevention, care, and support services, and the barriers that prevent access to these services.
