This guide was prepared for use by organizations run by and for people living with HIV (PLHIV) that offer support, services, or advocacy-related work, and is designed to help these organizations to examine how they can empower their women members, as well as integrate gender as part of the organization. Board members of HIV organizations can use the guide to examine their policies around gender equity, and program managers can use it when planning future programs.
The guide outlines the meaning of gender equity and its importance, the rights of HIV-positive women, and the specific concerns they face. It also provides a questionnaire to examine the level of gender equity within the organization and some practical steps to address inequities.
