2006

The first annual National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day was held in the United States. Regan Hoffman, a woman living with HIV, became the first female editor-in-chief of Poz Magazine.

The Center for Women's Global Leadership released the report "Strengthening Resistance: Confronting Violence Against Women and HIV/AIDS." The report focused on the points of intersection in the social, political and public health crises of violence against women and HIV/AIDS. It used a human rights lens to focus on critical political challenges and on innovative strategies used by activists worldwide as they respond to the links between violence and HIV/AIDS.



Additional reporting was provided by Mathew Rodriguez, editorial project manager for TheBody.com and TheBodyPRO.com.
