Gender Equality and Key Populations Results, Gaps and Lessons From the Implementation of Strategies and Action Plans
The Gender Equality Strategy (2008) and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identities (SOGI) Strategy (2009) were the first formal, strategic commitments by the Board of the Global Fund to addressing these areas within the institution’s policies and investments.This Rapid Review focuses on the current frameworks for implementing the strategies - the Gender Equality Action Plan 2014-2016 and the Key Populations Action Plan 2014-2017. The review was conducted in January – March 2016 by an independent consultant, informed by over 45 key stakeholder interviews and 70 resources.
This report presents recent scientific evidence about the links between HIV, HPV and cervical cancer, and it supplies relevant epidemiological, screening, vaccination and innovation data. Ultimately, its goal is to (a) promote synergies between HIV and cervical cancer prevention programmes, (b) make the case for integrating cervical cancer prevention into existing HIV treatment and prevention programmes, (c) explain the opportunities for women’s health that exist in coordinating HIV and cervical cancer prevention, and (d) advance prevention and treatment literacy among affected populations.
Together for Girls’ (TfG) 2015-2016 stakeholderreport “Breaking the Cycle of Violence” is now available. The report includes findings from the 2015 Violence Against Children Surveys in Malawi, Nigeria and Zambia. It also highlights the partnership’s global advocacy accomplishments and country partners’ progress in responding to violence, including programs in Malawi and Cambodia that are working to change social norms and educate youth on skills that can be protective against violence.
