Geneva / GCWA: GCWA recognised at the Programme Coordinating Board meeting of UNAIDS

15 Dec, 2011

From 13-15 December 2011, the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB) meeting of UNAIDS took place in Geneva.

During the agenda discussions, the work of the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS was highlighted. The PCB NGO Delegation welcomed the work of the GCWA, undertaken in partnership with AIDS Legal Network, South Africa, around the Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections among Children by 2015 and Keeping Their Mothers Alive (the Global Plan). As underscored by the PCB NGO Delegation, this work enabled women to identify gender barriers to vertical transmission services and provide recommendations on how to take forward the Global Plan in ways that will be most effective and meaningfully involve women and girls living with and affected by HIV.

Meanwhile, Gracia Violeta Ross, member of the Bolivian Network of People living with HIV, intervened from the floor to highlight the importance of the new briefing paper developed by GCWA on Violence against Women and HIV, calling on all participants to take forward the recommendations included in the briefing paper.
