The Global Coalition on Women and AIDS (GCWA) engaged at the 6th International AIDS Society (IAS) Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Care, which took place in Rome from 17-20 July 2011. It was a great success and we would like to share our feedback from our activities there!

Working in partnership with the ATHENA Network, WECARE+ and the Salamander Trust, the GCWA sought to ensure the meaningful participation of women, in particular young women living with HIV and in all their diversities, throughout the conference. All activities were developed and taken forward in partnership with the above mentioned organizations, and the GCWA would like to express its sincere appreciation in this regard.

 

Key activities included…

  • Supporting young women’s participation at the conference
  • A satellite session: Prevention technologies: Gender and GIPA -Complement or Collision?
  • A town Hall meeting and reception for local community participation
  • The Women’s Networking Zone
