UN Launches First Comprehensive Web Site on Gender and HIV/AIDS

March 31, 2003

In an effort to place gender equality at the center of the fight against HIV/AIDS, the UN has launched its first comprehensive Web site that promotes understanding, knowledge and action on the epidemic as a gender and human rights issue. "By bringing knowledge and information to the global community, we are able to empower women," said Noeleen Heyzer, executive director of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). Designed to be user-friendly, informative and interactive, the site offers research, training materials, surveys, advocacy tools, current news and opinion pieces by leading experts. "This online resource center is a practical step forward by UNIFEM and UNAIDS together, designed to improve the support for the millions of women around the world living with HIV and affected by the epidemic," according to UNAIDS Executive Director Peter Piot. Visit the Web site at: www.genderandaids.org.
