The GCWA partnership is open to all international or civil society organizations who sign on to its principles. By joining the GCWA, partners commit to strengthening their own organization’s work on women and AIDS. The GCWA is a supporter of the NGO Code of Good Practice and the associated Women and AIDS Checklist, and encourages all partners to review these tools, and use them to strengthen their own organizations.
In this site we feature their women and girls specific activities and campaigns, as well as news and events related to their work.
