Blog Describes PEPFAR's New HIV-Related Gender Analysis Requirement

January 24, 2014

The requirement lays out a formidable challenge with high-stakes goals, asking in-country inter-agency teams to identify gender-related issues that affect access to HIV-related resources and services and control over those resources, and bring about 'differences in power among and between women and men, girls and boys' ...," according to the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog (Barton, 1/23).
