8 Days for Gender Equality Campaign

8 Days for Gender Equality Campaign

For 8 days, from Zero Discrimination Day (1 March) to International Women's Day (8 March), Aidsfonds is raising awareness for gender equality with our '8 Days for Gender Equality' Campaign. Each day we'll cover strategic action that can be taken against gender inequality fueling the AIDS epidemic. On the 8th day, we launch our new guide on Gender Transformative HIV Programming, the Big Picture, filled with strategic approaches and case studies. 

Gender equality and HIV

Gender equality means equal rights and opportunities within all areas of life. It means valuing different behaviours, aspirations and needs equally, regardless of gender. In Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5, the world committed to ending all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere. Gender inequality, resulting in discrimination and violence, is a root cause of the HIV epidemic worldwide. Marginalised communities often face multiple, overlapping forms of discrimination, and are thus disproportionately impacted by HIV and AIDS. Now is the time to address this injustice!
