Programs for Women

Spring 2001

Programs for women, such as support groups, that include participants in the decision making process are key to surviving with HIV and preventing new HIV infections.

Giving women program ownership empowers them, challenges the social roots of vulnerability, and tackles the issue of negotiating safer sex for themselves and their partners.

Such an environment, in which they can talk openly, enables women to voice their opinions about sexual decision-making and HIV to one another and ultimately, to their partners.

It also encourages open communication regarding the diverse racial, ethnic, class, sexual orientation, and HIV status backgrounds of the participants.
