"On Tuesday the U.S. Positive Women's Network (PWN) hosted a webinar to discuss HIV-positive women's sexual rights and to commemorate Valentine's Day as a day to uphold the rights of HIV-positive women to have safe and satisfying sexual lives," the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog reports. According to the blog, "Presenters discussed various ways in which HIV-positive women can gain sexual and reproductive rights, from using a human rights-based approach, to implementing new biomedical prevention technologies through U.S. health care reform, to how to advocate for women-centered care" (Aziz, 2/16).
