Access a new edition (2020) of the Big Picture now! Use this guide as your ‘how-to’ guide for developing a gender-transformative approach in HIV programming. 

Gender inequality, resulting in discrimination and violence, is a root cause of the HIV epidemic worldwide. Taking a gender-transformative approach will make HIV programming more effective. In the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the world has committed to ending all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere. Us, at Aidsfonds, strive to work for a gender-equitable world and therefore provide this guide to all parties ready to join us.

The time is now to stop gender inequality being a root cause of HIV infections – for women and young girls worldwide!
