PEPFAR's Commitment to Eliminating Gender-Based Violence

November 15, 2011

In anticipation of the Sixteen Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, a campaign which starts on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25, Daniela Ligiero, senior adviser for gender at the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator, reports on PEPFAR's commitment to address gender-based violence in this post in the Department of State's "DipNote" blog. She writes, "[PEPFAR] recognizes that gender inequalities -- in particular, gender-based violence, including sexual violence -- fuel the spread of HIV," and "is committed to addressing and responding to gender-based violence, with a focus on sexual violence. Our growing financial investments reflect this commitment" (11/14).
